Just wanted to post that I now have an SWR meter and can bring it on runs if anyone needs to use it.

Who besides these people have one?

Your antenna needs to be tuned to a specific resistance to match your radio. Placement and length are a couple things that can affect this tuning, and if not tuned properly damage to your radio can occur. Also a well tuned antenna will get better range then a badly tuned one.

If you wanna meet up some time we can tune yours if you want!

Yeah, that would be great. I just have a little cheap CB, and I got my antenna free from my uncle.
