Keyed up my cb and idle became erratic

So today I got new 3' firestick cb antennas and I went to go talk on my cb to ensure they were working. Then instantly my idle became very rough. I also noticed the closer the antenna was to the motor the worse it got. I have no clue what is going on. Its not a high out put cb or anything like that. I have asked my mechanics and they don't seem to know either. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

Non-motorcraft ICP? or CPS I can't remember, another member posted that his truck would die due to his radio. One of the aftermarket ones was not shielded and caused it
