Could be but my Firestick FS-2 2' antenna, mounted at just above tail light height, has a 1.3 SWR and it doesn't make it above the rollbar at all. My antenna is 2' so the TJ can fit into the garage.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Anyway glad to hear you got it fixed.

Well that's good news. I'll have to try another 3' antenna to see if it was just DOA (still a few years away from needing a 2' antenna).

See a few posts up; this was resolved by changing the antenna. Thank you for the thoughts though.
