Will mounting sdv8622t/27 antenna higher improve reception.also if the booster stays dry is it ok to mount outdoors


Hello,

yes, mounting the sdv8622t/27 antenna higher will improve its reception. The more the antenna goes up, the better the reception it receives. There won't be any interruptions if the sdv8622t/27 antenna goes higher. So, it is better if you mount the antenna higher as you intend.

As for the booster, it is not okay for the booster to stay outdoors. The booster should remain indoor, while the antenna stays outdoor.

I believe this is clear to you now. If you still have any more questions about your sdv8622t/27 antenna, please let me know as I would be please to respond to you.

Yours sincerely.

Extndedmods done not problem tansmiting in am radio go back to 10 meter or they do not here my voice clear or a load nois lake a long roger bit or does not trasmit ad all i have to reset again no...


make sure NO ONE clipped your modulation limiter!!!! the Magnums are way over modulated of a radio. any mods will cause trouble. you are probably getting a feedback making it sound like a roger beep.. also it will depend on your SWR's make sure they are good on the band that you are talking on. ie.. no antenna on the market can work 10-12meters except maybe the 108"whips $17.99 and the predator 10k.... so be sure to check the swr's on ever channel that you would operate on. like ch 19 and 28.xxx and be sure first. high swr's will cause feedback on any radio.

Red antenna warning indicator light stays on


The red light is a warning of antenna mismatch; when you hold the antenna, you are changing the match between the CB's output amplifier and the antenna. Try it with a different antenna or pick up a 'test light' (or test load) for CBs from an electronics dealer, I've also seen them with CB accessories at truck stops. If the test light fires off and the red light on the CB is dark, the antenna you have is junk.

My antenna light stays on even after I have realeased the mike


Try checking the SWR's on channel 1, 20, and 40. The SWR's will change from the low channels to the mid channels to the high channels. The key is to make sure that the SWR's are around 1 or less at all three points. If the light goes out when checking one of them, then the problem is most likely the SWR's. If the light stays on when checking these channels, the issue might still be the SWR's but I would look at the grounding on the antennas. When holding the talk button on the mic and switching from calibrate to swr, can give a false reading. This is due to the calibrate circuit remaining open until you release the talk button. Take the SWR reading by releasing the Talk button on the mic after calibrating then pressing the talk button again after switching back to SWR. This will be the most accurate reading. From everything you described, I would be looking for a grounding problem with the antennas or coax, possibly even a rub though on the coax somewhere in the dash.

After keying antena lite stays on have to turn radio off to clear


Make sure your antenna is tuned properly. The light comes on when the SWR is too high. This damages the final transmission transistor. You can blow the transmit in the radio.

If you need to tune your antenna and do not know now, go here and follow the instructions...

tune SWR

there could already be some damage to the final transistor already, it may be why the light stays on. Tune the antenna according to the article and then if the light stays on again, there may be something wrong with the radio, or the warning light is not adjusted correctly.

If your swr is okay, then turn vr6 all the way down so the light does not come on.
