    Tuning the CB Antenna for Opti

    Antenna length is directly related to signal frequency. Therefore, it must be tuned to resonate optimally throughout the frequency range of the transceiver. Lower frequencies require a longer antenna than higher frequencies. Due to the various methods of adjusting antennas for proper SWR, we have chosen what we think is the optimum method:

    Hi..i am a new user here. As per my knowledge Radio transmitters such as CB's require that the antenna lenght be tuned for optimum performance of the transmitter. A 1/16" difference from tthe optimum lenght can result in 50% of your transmit power being wasted.Antenna is tuned using an SWR (standing wave ratio) meter. The meter needs to be hooked up in line between the radio and the antenna.
