The so called "digital tuner" is usually referred to as the radio's channel selection knob, that lets the radio's user select the "channel", or otherwise known as, the "the transmit and receive frequency" that (and upon) that the radio will operate on, when transmitting and receiving.

do i need to have a seprate swr meter to tune the antenna or is that what the digital tuner is

Asked by max January 16, 2017

Answers

The answer is YES, to tune/match the antenna, to the transmission line, so most signal RF energy gets sent out.

can this be used as a home base unit not in a car?

Asked by Rick September 30, 2016

Yes, but it will require either a 3 amp 12-14 volt DC power supply, or a 12v battery.

At 4 watts peak, how can it be a 30 mile radio

GEEZ. I've been running C.B. Radios since 1973. In the right conditions( REPEAT, RIGHT CONDITIONS), IT may be possible. However radio and antenna grounding, and available battery power to the unit, is a big plus. This is not to say the correct antenna placement for minimum SWR( STANDING WAVE RATIO), for optimal transmit and receive is needed. Now with all that said, I currently run a Cobra 29 LTD, peaked and tuned, with a connex board, A Predator 10K antenna, centered in the middle rear of my Suburban on a 4 mag. launch pad, with a 1.3 SWR, running a 250 watt linear, and the best HIWAY transmit and receive has been 22 miles, on Interstate 20 in East Texas, at 10 at night. This set up is considered illegal by the FCC. SSSOOOOO, The Extra Talk is either a built in linear, or you'll need PERFECT CONDITIONS AT ALL TIMES to talk 30 miles daily. I'm not saying it can't be done, and other hands on the road have better radios than I do, and they talk further. I'm No expert, JUST SAYING...…….

Seems to work fine. Couldn't get the SWR below 2.5 on channel 39 and 40 but it could've been the antennae and/or mounting location of it. I don't use channels up that high anyway. Primary use is four wheeling.

It works as a normal CB should, but it does not reach 30-miles unless perhaps you are standing on two mountaintops and atmospheric conditions are perfect. Five miles is about the normal distance if the antenna is adjusted and tuned properly.
