Fox & Hound Tips ???

I finally bought one and tried it between 2 new switch locations with multiple wires in each. Neither end is hooked up to the panel yet so theres no ground. So on the first try, the tone was weak. The wires were clearly marked so I knew I was on the right one but was let down with a weak tone and the neighboring wires also carried the same tone.

So any tips or advice on how to use this thing would be appreciated.

I have that same tone kit. You have to make sure all the wires on not touching eachother or it will not work right. I love it! works great
