Here are instructions to tune your antenna using the McKinley radio:

ADJUSTMENT OF SWR (Standing wave ratio) 

WARNING: This must be carried out when you use your CB radio for the first time (and whenever you re-position your antenna). The adjustment must be carried out in an obstacle-free area. In CB mode only. **There is no dot between the 2 digits of SWR value, for example 25 means 2.5. NEW, EASY AND VERY HANDY- Adjustment of SWR meter by beep tones. Here is a link for the MCKINLEY owner's manual.

Push the CH knob (6) six times to enter the SWR function. 

Display shows a message with active channel and SWR during 2 seconds, for example {CH40 SWR}. 

The radio goes to TX mode automatically without pressing PTT key (13) and starts SWR measurement. Measurement time is 5 minutes maximum. The remaining time is displayed on sub indicator. 

Adjust your antenna. 

Tone beep* is continuous when SWR value is equal to 10** (SWR=1.0). The space between two beeps became longer when SWR value moves away from 10** (SWR=1.0). 

Volume Beep is adjustable with VOL knob (1). 

Display shows the SWR value. For example 25** (SWR=2.5). 

When adjusted, press the CH knob (6) to activate the next function (TONE). 

Press PTT switch (13) to exit FUNCTIONS mode. *Please check that the beep volume is set to a comfortable listening level.
