cb radio question

So i have a cobra 29 LX 40 channel CB. Here lately the incoming signal is static and scratchy when coming from close range but the farther apart we get the clearer it gets up until out of range.

Does this happen in the city or out in the country?

That could be possible. Is it possible that you could be losing the signal a little? Have you tried playing with the delta tune on your cb?

Well I would say if you had bare copper then that would be the problem. I was also gonna see if you could borrow a buddies anteena and try it out.
