Question about Radio Communications
I recently purchased a used 2006 Cal Spa 6100. I'm having an issue with the LED lights. They operate perfectly if I'm only running one pump on low speed and the secondary pump. When I turn the jets on as well, about 2/3 of the lights go off. Any suggestions?
Not enough power, are you running all the lights from the same power source, if you are find another circuit to hook the other set to.

SOURCE: SWR Cal meter is stuck
Passing a small magnet in front of the meter may be enough to free it up. It may, however, be an indication of a problem with the needle type bearing on either end of the shaft that supports the indicator or that the coiled indicator spring has broken.

not necessarily. it may be electrically short. if the swr is higher on channel one than it is on channel fourty, your antenna is electrically short. if the swr is higher on channel fourty than it is on channel one, your antenna is electrically long. no matter what anyone says, all antennas are tunable. just cut the shielding back at the top of the antenna and adjust if necessary. if it is a steel whip, it should have a set screw at the bottom. if you still have problems with high swr, ground the mount to your vehicle. if you still have high swr, you might have to try a non ground plane antenna.

SOURCE: I just took my cobra
You seem to have a short or an open circuit . Could be a PL259 connector problem, the ant. is defective and can possibly be a bad ground. Try to add an extra GND. from the ant. base to a central GND. point...This will include the power neg. lead from the radio.
PLS E. Note: If the O/P POwer shown when you key up to check SWR is higher than usual this
will indicate a definate ant. problem................GOOD LUCK and have fun learn'n ! ! !

you have to adjust the length of the antenna to change that. It has nothing to do with the radio. except ensure 100% power out goes out and not getting reflected back... check ch 1 and ch. 40 and see what the readings are. if they are or one of those channels should be below 2. you want it in the green part of the meter. Call we can walk you thru the process. if both 1 &40 are above 3 then there is problems. either coax, shorted, mounting problems or antenna not cut to right length. make sure if your using a mirror braket that the white insulator is on top.
