Can someone tune my CB?

I have everything to do it but I just can't get it right. My range is pathetic. Is anyone with experience able to do this? I'm in the Toledo, OH area.

Are you reading the meter right? Most of it is trial and error. Keep messing around with it. I tuned mine perfectly by accident!

Actually, I bought the meter to tune mine, and plugged the meter in to the heep, found that it was tuned perfectly. unless I was reading it wrong....but I have great range and haven't had any issues so far!

Its not hard, just raise or lower the "whip" on your antenna untill you get a 1.5 or lower match. Somtimes you need to cut the whip shorter. And you need a good ground! Also use 18' of coax from your radio to antenna...(if its not premade). With a good match you'll be WORLDWIDE!
