    I just installed a Cobra 19 III and was under the impression that i would need to tune it. I have since looked all over the internet and i keep seeing 'Electronic Tuning' does this mean it has an autotune in it?
    Do i still need to use a SWR meter to tune the antenna?
    I'm new to the BCB scene so any help would be great.

    Okay, thats what i thought, just the 'automatic tuning' threw me off a little bit.

    Thanks!

    no prob. what i did was buy a rather inexpensive swr meter and left it installed inline to my cb radio.
