    Who ordered a Uniden 980?

    peaked output & detune??

    I picked up a cheap swr/watt meter today just to get a rough idea what my uniden pc78ltw was doing before I spent the time and money (couple hrs drive one way) taking it to be detuned for my amp. Radio dead keys about 6watt and swings about 50 :confused1: I know it is a cheap meter so lets...

    Different Look At 102" Whip Discussion

    When I had mine mounted on the rollbar the needle never moved when I would check the SWR, Someone told me that SWR being too low was a bad thing so I went to 12' of coax and that got them to 1.3. As for drive throughs, My truck is not drive through friendly anyway.

    Different Look At 102" Whip Discussion

    When I first started using a 102" I had in on a ball mount with about 20' of coax and no spring. I don't recall what the swr was but they were acceptable for a stock radio. But I started having trouble with the mount grounding out. When I set up my next truck I made a mount that mounted to my...

    CB hot car storage, and 29 LTD Classic mods

    I have a few questions but will try to keep this as short as I can. A friend only drives his pickup when he needs to and sometimes it can sit for 2 or 3 months between use, He enjoys having a CB in it but they seem to quit working while the truck is parked. He has always bought just...

    Antenna mounting. Humming, trees, garages, etc.

    I can not comment on the hum with the 102" as I have never noticed it in my truck. I would suspect it is electrical, Fuel pump, Alt, fuel injecters, Spedometer sending unit and such. They used to make noise filters that wired into the power wires that helped some. I personally love the...

    Coax questions for 102" and Wilson 1000

    I have to replace the coax on on my truck. I have been running rg8x on my 102" , Should I stick with the rg8x or is there something better for use with the extra wattage of the palomar 400? Also is it possable to replace the coax on a Wilson 1000? A friend has one but the coax is damaged...

    Uniden PC78LTW mods

    I think a swing mod is what he called it. Don't recall for sure. Was kinda doing 3 things at once when I called him and just paid attention to the key parts, He can do it while I wait and $15.

    How many truckers are running VHF ? Is CB dying ?

    I live fairly close to a industral park and hear the guards giving direction to truckers all the time. But the other day a trucker came into a local store asking what gate to enter and looked at me like I was stupid for telling him radio the guard shack. He had no radio at all in his truck.

    Uniden PC78LTW mods

    I called the C.B. Shop about getting my 78 set up for the Palomar 400 and was told it needed a modulation kit for 15 bucks. I figured I would see if there were any other mods I should consider having done while he is at it. Also I don't want to run the amp all the time, Can it be set up to...
