Normally, you will only need to tune your Centerfire Antenna if you plan to transmit with it. Our scanner antennas are designed to cover the frequency ranges listed for each antenna without any need for further adjustment. You should check the condition or your coax and connectors on a regular basis to be sure they are in optimum condition.
If you are planning to transmit with your Centerfire Antenna it is highly recommended that you check the antenna and coax with an appropriate SWR meter and adjust the antenna's length and/or location accordingly. Your radio "station" is a system that needs to be tuned together. Factors such as coax type, length, connections and antenna location will have an influence on your system's performance.
