The CB, Antenna and Wire are all new. He knew NOT to turn on the CB without having the antenna attached first and he didn't. We just need to find someone that knows CB's to see where the issue is. The weather comes in loud and clear, but it's silent otherwise.

There are two different mode in your radio. The weather channels are FM mode and the CB signals are an AM mode. There is a knob on your radio that should be labeled squelch. Think of it as a filter. It can keep you from hearing very weak signals and if set incorrectly it can keep you from hearing strong signals. There is also a knob labeled RF gain.
With the radio hooked to the antenna turn your squelch knob all the way counter clockwise and your RF knob all the clockwise and see if you hear noise. Of course, the volume knob needs to be tured up also.
If you hear noise it is simply a dance between the squelch and RF knobs to hear only the strength of signal that you wish to hear.
