Installed a Galaxy DX 959 CB in my Jeep Wrangler.
I'm a fair novice at CB, and when I powered up I was concerned about SWR tuning. (still am, but it seems close in tuning)
Don't have a separate meter to use, and trying to tune up the antenna.
(Firestik Firefly 3 ft.)(front fender mounted, on driver side)
Tried a 2 ft. unit but didn't pick up much reception.
3Ft is better somewhat.
Question, should I take this new radio in for tweaking? Is this a common practice to make sure things are aligned correctly? I'd like to have reasonable assurance it's working at best possible circumstances.
That would include the tech also tuning the antenna correctly?
How do professional truckers handle these things?
You'd think they would be experts!
Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated!
Then we can rap on the trails better!
