Hi,. I just trying to get started in CB, so I have to crawl before I walk. I have a mobile radio in my home hooked to a 102" steel whip and spring mounted to 20' pole and my swr as running 1.9 to 2.5 I tied to adjust but no luck. I noticed my pl259 wouldn't tighten up properly on the radio, cheap coax and connectors ? So I got some new coax gray 8x, that connected properly on each end, Damn the swr are even higher now.3 / 3.2 lol the way through. Are you supposed to shorten or raise to lower swr ?? Now the pole is right next to my mobile home, could that be the problem ???
