Well its mounted to a firestik, http://www.firestik.com/Catalog/IBA5.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I was told it would work by Stryker. So far so good but the radio says other wise yet the SWR meter says its in check. I also was told to use an external SWR meter witch I have done.

I've never used that indoor antenna, I really don't care much for FireStik. Did you try the antenna that came with that base to see if the SWR is any better? Where is the antenna located, inside or out, inside you would have an SWR problem because of the surroundings.

I run a RF Limter DF3000, From RF Limited works well after I raised my antenna to the highest to get 1.5 SWR.

Just to let you know dont run a RF limiter, With out the limiter its like 2.5 plus with it is 1.5 SWR weird.
