I have a Galaxy 949 that's been peaked and tuned. I also have a Cobra 19 thrown under the seat with a cig lighter soldered to it to power it. I tuned the 949 SWRs in the past for a 5' Firestik and a Lil Wilson. I checked it again today to see what's up with the power on the radio's meter as to why it has appeared to have decreased over time and this is what I got. The radio and truck stop meter with a 3' jumper to an 18' coax to a lil wilson, did the same with the 5' Firestik also with almost identical results. The SWR with the meter inline is 1.5:1-2.5:1, this reads the same on the meter and the radio. With the meter and jumper out, the radio reads .5 lower each end and flat lines with the firestik. Now the power on the meter with the 949 reads 35 spiking and holding 30ish, yet the radio meter reads only about 18 spike and holding 15. The 19 only got 4-5 watts. I think the meter is a RoadPro. Do these readings sound correct? Do I need a shorter or longer jumper? Is the radio's power meter failing?
