Connex 3300hp radio
Based on your post/description:
do i set the swr
Normally SWR are calibrated on your operating channel (where you usually stand-by). This is to maximize transmit power and receive sensitivity. To set SWR, switch to channel of your choice, switch SWR control to CAL, key or press PTT, while pressing PTT rotate ADJ knob until max deflection of needle on meter, release mic, switch control to SWR, key/press PTT, needle reading/deflection is SWR for that channel.
I would suspect that your SWR will vary from your current 1.4. This is because you have too big excursion of channels (240 channels).
This reading is good enough and should do. However as earlier stated, you seem to have 240 channels which would mean that your radio + antenna moves in a wide bandwidth and since the antenna tuning is affected by frequency, your SWR will also be affected by channel.
Best if you can further lower it down.
cb cant get me
This is because the standard CB radio is only 40 channels. The next would be a 80 channel and then 120 channels.
it my radio
Yes, you have a wide coverage radio almost an extended 10 meter rig.
i have to set my radio on high or low to set my swr
I will assume you are referring to power output, set it to HIGH when doing SWR calibration
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
