I wasn't sure whether to put this under mobile or base. I am using a Galaxy DX-959 with a Imax 2000 antenna as a base. My swr is 1.2:1 on channel 1 and 1.3:1 on channel 40. When I dead key the mic, the meter goes to <1. This same radio does not do it in my Silverado with a Predator 10k. I tried another DX-959/RFX-75 on the Imax and the meter works fine. Anybody have any clues as to why this might occur?

Check the Imax installation instructions on the rings being adjusted up or down. you should get flat swr on a barefoot 959 with Imax. Also make sure coax is connected right and no bad pl-259's. Because if you run power it will go up slightly and don't want to exceed 2.0:1 with power. Really anything under 2.0:1 is good, but barefoot should close to flat once those rings on Imax are right. i usually go to channel 20 first to get flat then go to 1 and 40. I'll check if the manual is online and post if is. Good Luck
