Ok, so I FINALLY got my JK, and I am considering a CB setup. My old man has a great big azz antenna (something like 10 or 12 feet tall, dunno how big, or if it even matters) that I used to use at my house years ago. It's got an egg-shaped spring-type thang at the bottom that seems like it would keep it from snapping from rapid velocity changes, so I'm thinking that if I give it a little thought I can mount it onto the Jeep somehow.
Since the antenna is so frikkin long, I was thinking that I could mount somewhere back toward the spare like some of the other rigs I've seen lately, and secure the tip of the antenna toward the front of the vehicle - maybe to the windshield loop on the hood?
Anyway - the thing is this - I gotta few questions:
WTF is this SWR you guys keep going on about? It seems like a ratio of 1:1 is the best you can get, but could someone explain a little bit about what this is and how it is attained?
