?? Tuning the new Maco V58 ??

I dialed mine in at 12' and mounted it at 52' to base and it got a tiny bit worse and now I cant reach it ;( do what you have to do with the radiator length and the matching ring to get it as FLAT as possible before it goes into the air ! Mine went from 1:1 at 12' across the 40 to 1:1.03-1:1.7 across the 40 when it went up . If your not flat on the ground it will only get worse ..

Best Omni I have ever owned though ! I had the v5/8 then the radials sagged so I got the 5/8-5000 and its a beefy performer no doubt !!

Just bought the V58...now wondering if I should have gotten the 5000

Don't forget the rc slots stuck down there in the original 23 channels

It's not going to matter too much.
You will find many casual users of CB don't know what actual frequency they are on as they just look at the channel display.
Only us nutty radio guys worry about frequencys.

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
