Won't tune a Cobra? Really? Nothing to do with unit, just the coils at the end of ur antenna! Try another shop.

Btw, any truck stop will have a shop that will do it.

I just picked up a swr meter and jumper from RadioShack and tuned my antenna.

If anyone wants to borrow it, I'm happy to lend it out. (I work in south tampa and live in st Pete)
