Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
Had the 29 with Wilson 4" Ant. installed for a couple weeks now & everything was working great....SWR 1.2 - 1.3 across all channels. Yesterday went out and just wanted to double check SWR, set button to "CAL" keyed Mic & needle barley moved, it just stayed all the way to the left. tried a few more times & needle wouldn't move. Did a few Radio checks(loud & clear @ both ends) & working like a champ. Went out today & needle went all the way & then got to check SWR. Just checked again and needle went half way up on "CAL" and no further. What do think, bad Meter ??
Weather can effect your meter .Those meters are not very accurate just a base line get a good swr meter and then check it.If your getting good radio checks it could be the potentoimeter is dirty . Radio shack sells contact cleaner and lube try cleaning it . That might help

Putting your SRF/SWR/CAL switch to the cal setting allows you to move the swr cal knob to set the radio's meter to reflect what the actual swr reading is (when taken with an inline meter).
