i just pulled out my swr meter to check the tunning of my antenna and i'm having problems with it. when i set have the meter on FWD and hit transmit on the cb i can't get the the needle to the "set" position or full scale deflection.

does anyone know if this is a problem with the meter or could i be doing something else wrong?

it doesn't go to full scale deflection when i talk into it and the scale reading doesn't change much between REF and FWD

i have this cb
http://www.cobra.com/products//75-w...t-cb-radio-with-soundtracker-and-noaa-weather
this swr meter
http://www.frys.com/product/3415093#detailed
and a firestik 2 antenna

the cb itself is working

i think the meter might be hooped. i lent it to someone a while back and haven't used it since then. it looks like it might have been droped. the last time i used it was about a year ago and it worked fine then.
