Firstly you will need to buy a swr metre this will give you the best match for your radio hence better perfarmance theres no other way of gettin round it as it will onle be a false reading or you can buy a pretuned anteena which dont need any ajustments but its cheaper to buy swr metre goodluck

There is usually a red line on most new ariels to set them up . check the adjustable centre.If not ask a friend with a rig to give you arig test as you move away from them.once far enough for low lights ajust again 5 millimeters up or down or till best tuned.

My Midland 1001Z 40-Channels Base CB Radio keep popping my fuse. I'm not getting any power to it. What to do ?


Hi erve, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. You need a 2amp fuse, make sure you have the correct polarity, red wire (+) to the hot, and the ground (-) to the ground side. It is best to run the unit to the battery. If still no avail, let me know, I will have further solution. Thanks for choosing FixYa...John
