    Hey Guys,

    Does anyone have an SWR meter I can borrow for my cb install tomorrow. I checked all the local outlets today an no one has them in stock. Frys in MV and SM both said they had them but when I drove there they "mysteriously" couldnt find them. I would just order one online, but I need to get it tuned so its ready for my trip on thursday.

    Please someone help!

    Thanks in advance.

    -Adam

    Damn, thanks for the offer, if all else falls through I may install and then drive up to tune it since I am heading up that way anyway.

    Really appreciate it.

    Bump for someone a little closer!

    TIA

    I smell that 6 pack of Corona! I'm in Chula Vista. I can help by giving it to my wife who works in the Clairemont/Kearny Mesa area for you to borrow. I even have the extra cable you would need to tune it. Let me know. Better yet PM me if you need my help. Good luck.

    There is a PILOT store by my work in OTAY MESA Randy that sells them. I can price it for you and let you know. Paypal it to me and I'll use that to buy it. Let me know. Otherwise there is a place in El Cajon that sells them too. Don't remember the name, but they are across the street from PG series. I think SoCalMan22 (Steve) would know. He's been there.
