    Sirio Performer 5000 speed SWR issue?

    I have a magnet mount Sirio Performer 5000 center mounted on my truck.
    I'm running an anytone 6666.

    The radio has a SWR function and standing still I have the antenna tuned to 1.0 SWR on the radio and with Motorola meter
    If I'm driving over 45-50 mph the SWR can read from 2.7 - 3.9

    #1, is that normal?
    #2, is an SWR reading only from stationary?

    I don't think there is any water under it. If I slow down, the reading drops.

    I just don't want to cook the finals.

    I also have a Sirio Performer 5000. I have always gotten very low swr's with this antenna and very good results. BUT I bought this antenna because when installed with a mag mount on my 04 Tundra who's roofline is already 6 feet I would use the mount to bend it back because it would otherwise hit low lying trees at 13 feet or so. I only use it when I arrive at my destination and only recieve when traveling.

    Only need to check SWR when stopped...driving around the antenna will pick-up reflect off surroundings, and whats under the road...SWR readings when driving won't be accurate..."bouncing around" swr reading when moving is normal...

    although 3.9 sounds a bit on the high-side even for moving...may want to double check and make sure it's not losing ground, or a loose connector on the coax.
