You should set the radio so the box dead keys around 300 to 400 watts.

Center the antenna on the vehicle, then check the SWR on channel 1 and channel 40.
with the switch in CAL position, key radio and use the swr/cal knob to
set the meter so the needle is just touching the end of the red area on
the right-hand side of the meter.
Once calibrated, unkey and switch
the switch to SWR and key up again. The lower the reading, the better. If the SWR is Higher on 40,
the antenna needs to be shorter.. if its higher on 1, then the antenna
needs to be longer.
if it dont transmit period on AM, then there's an internal glitch :)
