I'd like to put an SWR meter on my CB and check the antenna match. What's the best way to get to the CB in order to attach the meter.

Thanks,

You can pick up the adapters to hook up your SWR meter at Radio Shack.
There are a total of four adapters needed and the RS people probably will not know which ones. You may be able to do a search on this board to find out. To connect the adapters, you will need to remove the seat and you will see the cb antenna cable running at the back of the seat. There is an automobile antenna type plug in connector. This will be where you connect your SWR meter. Good luck

sierra electronics has the cable set for about $13 plus shipping. It may be cheaper then the individual adapters from radio schack.

Thanks for the replies. I got the adapters I needed at RS (and it was closer to $20 bucks than $13) but I hadn't read that post. Put the meter on the bike and the SWR was 1.2 to 1 without changing anything. So I didn't. As the saying goes......I'll take it.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Regards,
