    I just tuned the radio lastnight and when switched to SWV it reads right in between 0 and 1.1 but when I switch to transmitting its almost up to 3 which is on the high side of the green band on the meter on the front of the radio. Is this normal?


    How's this thing go back together???

    If anybody is near Atlanta, there is one CB guy who does all my CB work. He is the best. Just tell him you know the Smokey and the Bandit guy (me). Ask for Wayne.
