    Default More SWRs

    I had my antenna set up just right with SWR meter on my VW Bug. I had to trim the antenna somewhat. I am now running the same antenna on Honda Civic, but have not re-tuned it. Should I ? (I've not used the transmitter since placing on Civic)

    At the very least check it anytime you chnage location, vehicle or anything from the back of the radio to the tip of the antenna.

    30seconds of your time is extremely cheap insurance on your investment.

    As far as tuning we'll see what the SWR is at on CH19 and go from there. Anything over 1.5-1.7 and I'd retune it as needed (may need to slide it up to be longer)
