Austin or San Antonio CB Shops?

Looking for a CB shop that will tune a CB already in place. I'm based in Austin on the south side. Could go to SA if there's nothing local.

You can try here:

Austin Amateur Radio Supply
5310 Cameron Road
Austin, TX 78723
800.423.2604 • Local 512.454.2994

I've heard they do CB stuff, but haven't personally used them. An SWR meter is only about $30, and tuning is easy. They are available at any good truck stop. You'll also need a 3' coax cable. Amazon, etc, also carries SWR meters.

Tuning is especially easy if you have a tunable antenna - like a Firestik with the screw knob on top.

Thanks, I'll give them a call. I have an SWR meter, and I tuned it. But I'm having issues with transmission distance where I was in a group with 2 others, and they were able to talk fine, but couldn't hear me at distance and I would guess we were less than 1/2 a mile away on open highway. So I figured it was time to bring in the experts.
