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.

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.
