Freebanding Antenna


One of those newbie questions, but if you don’t ask you don’t find out.

Just bought a SS 6900 and an Antron A99, hoping to get the antenna up a weekend, work permitting and my intention is to have ago on Freebanding (USB) and every now and then have a look see on FM CB.

My question is when checking the SWR after mounting the antenna do I test it on USB or FM mode and will it work on both equally as well when I have finished, I suppose the same question is valid in my car?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Freebanding Antenna


SWR the antenna on FM. you need the constant carrier to get an accurate reading. The swr will be the same on usb.

The swr will vary, as you tune up and down the band, so check the swr at the top and bottom of the band.

The Antron is very wide-banded, so it will tune-up easily across 11m.

Hope that helps?
