Tune your antenna
The Patriot comes pre-tuned from the factory for 27 MHz CB radio bands, but field tuning may be required to ensure best performance. Tuning the Patriot CB antenna is easily accomplished via TWO threaded tuning rings and using the guide to tuning your CB antenna available from CB World's help center.
- Threaded tuning (two spots on antenna with tuning rings)
- Can be tuned to work for 10-12 meter
- 1/2 Wave Fiberglass Antenna
- Rugged fiberglass construction with Chrome Plated Ferrules
- Single coil circuitry for best tuning and reliability
- Includes mounting hardware (mounts to 1 1/2" pipe)- this antenna should be mounted on a 8 to 12' length mast/pole (if longer or shorter, it may be difficult to tune the antenna for ideal SWR). If mounted on a mast/pole that is longer than 12', it might be necessary to trip the upper portion of the antenna, which is not ideal. It would be better to consider getting the PROTON99 antenna instead.
