How to set standing wave


The SWR is set by the antenna. It depends on the type of antenna you have as to the correct procedure. If the antenna has a stainless steel whip then a set screw is loosened so that the whip can be adjusted up and down. Most Fiberglass antennas have to be trimmed. Some of the fiberglass antennas have tuning adjustments under the rubber cap on the end. Check you SWR on channel 1 and on channel 40. If it is higher on 40 than it is on channel 1 then your antenna is too long and needs to be shortened. If your SWR is higher on 1 and lower on 40 then the antenna is too short. There are many articles on the web concerning SWR. I urge you to read up because having the SWR set on your rig will ensure many years of good operation and performance.

Eton e5 sw shot


The SW FET preamp transistor, Q1, on the underside of the circuit board blows if a static electric discharge hits the whip antenna. In my case, a cat rubbing against me & the radio on a very dry winter day did it in. The back & circuit board has to be removed to get at it. The micro transistor & the solder connection are very tiny, so hard to replace. The antenna jack should still work, because the preamp is only for the whip antenna's SW reception. An easier solution would be to just run a wire from the antenna jack to the whip antenna, but you would no longer have the whip's preamp benefits, or just use a longwire antenna connected to the jack for SW. Also beware plugging into the jack disables the AM ferrite antenna inside, so you might not want anything plugged into it for AM reception because the internal ferrite seems to perform better than any external antenna.

Red lights come on ex and antenna come on when I key up the cb radio and the awe meter doesn't move


Sounds like high swr. If using a mag mount antenna; check for a proper ground by cleaning the antenna base and the place where you put the antenna. Any other antenna; check the place where the whip goes into the coil at base of the antenna. Make sure that antenna has good ground. Check continuity of the pl259. Make sure there is a good connection and no opens or shorts. Hope it helps.

I have a cobra 29 lx le hooked to a francies 5.5 whip om my 2007 kw t 600 am getting anyenna warning both radio and antenna are new frustrated


Have the SWR or match on the system checked, high match does not mean a bad antenna but can be a open or short in the system for the antenna.

Receives very well- other radios can barely hear me-I have a short mag base antenna


The rule is the taller the antenna the better the reception and power output. Of course it is not always convenient to mount a 102" whip.
  • 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same output as if you put 11 watts into a 3-foot whip.
  • 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna,, it is the same as if you put 14 watts into a 28-inch antenna.
  • 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same as if you put 54 watts into a 7.5-inch antenna.

You did not mention the signal on their meter and how close they are. This may be a modulation issue. Wattage increases can go unnoticed volume wise but small modulation increase can make dramatic changes in volume to the receiving radio. Check that your dynamike or mike gain control is turned up clockwies increases it. The radio itself may need the modulation increased internally. If you have a powermike with adjustments on back it may be way to low. Hope this was of some help

I have spotty reception on a handheld CB and was wondering if there is a testing procedure I can use to check the antenna and radio. I have a multimeter. It's a radio shack handheld with weather bands...


The antenna is your problem not much gain. Height is everything tx and rx. Although it would not compare to a conventional cb size negates performance. Seeing is believing in this case hearing get adapter to connect to standard coax of antenna. (PL259) to BNC Coax Adapter Radio Shack sells them. And dont ask or buy any radios there. They are hardly the radioshack of choice anymore.

  • If you put 4 watts into a four-foot antenna, you will get the same power out of that antenna as if you were putting 2 watts into a 102-inch whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 3-foot antenna you will get the same power out as if you were putting about 1.5 watts into a 102-inch whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 7.5 inch antenna on a hand held CB, it would put out as much power as a third of a watt into a 102-whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same output as if you put 11 watts into a 3-foot whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna,, it is the same as if you put 14 watts into a 28-inch antenna.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same as if you put 54 watts into a 7.5 antenna.

Calibration problem


Changing the length of the mast more then likely made your antenna to short, and therefore impossible to tune.

I installed a browning br-51 cb antenna on my cb radio.


You need to shorten the antenna,adjust the whip all the way down and see what you have and then cut off 1/4" at a time remember this low on 1 high on 40 it needs to be lengthened high on 1 low on 40 it needs to be shortened . I hope this helps and good luck.

Antenna


OUCH! Cb antennas are cut to a specific frequency. FM antennas are also cut to a specific frequency. If you ground the antenna to a frame, you short out the antenna. BAD THING. If it is a 102" whip, you would have to cut off about 2/3's of the whip to work. If there is a cylinder at the base of the antenna You would only need about 7' of the whip sticking out for it to work right. Inside the cylinder there is a coil that would make up for the missing length of a 102" whip. I would suggest finding an old CB with FM built in like one of the old SEARS CB/FM receivers.
They had the electronics built in to compensate for the varience in the old sets.

Non grnd steel antena


I assume your coax is not hooked up properly or you have some kink of a short in your antenna connection ( thats if your cb is working properly ) Radio Shacks Information that suggested that the 102" whip is the perfect antenna is their opion only as I prefer to recommend a full wave antenna system to my customers, but I do assure you, the 102" whip does work well if it's properly installed. I have found the main problem in the 102" whip installation is when the center hole is cut to install the antenna, it's not cut big enough, which grounds the antenna. It's not suppose to be grounded in any fashion to the automible chassis. The ground of this antenna comes from the 3 screws mounted around the outside of the antenna mount. Check that for sure. If you can't correct the problem. write me back at this web sight of direct at wyoed1@aol.com. Good Luck
