    New to cbs need help!!

    I'm new to the cb world. I hooked up a cobra 19 ultra in my ranger. I made sure to follow step by step proper installation but when I hooked up the SWR meter and tested its in the red on both channel 1 and 40. Can anyone help?

    Are you using the internal meter? If so first off I would look into an external meter. The radio shack meters work well and aren't very expensive. If you still have a radio shack near you check them. If not ebay has them. If you are using the internal or an external meter, turn mic gain all the way down. Then switch the radio to calibration (cal), and set this at the end of the meter. Then switch to swr and check. Photos would be nice to see what kind of mount you're using or can you elaborate some on the mount and where the antenna is located and such. What type coax, antenna, mount, where it's mounted. This will help us help you.
