Plan the location of the radio and micro-
phone bracket before starting installation.
Selecta locationthat is convenientfor op-
eration and does not interfere with the
driver or passenger in the vehicle. The
radio should be securely fastened to a
solid surface using the mounting bracket
and self-tapping screws which are
Since the maximum allowable power out-
put of the transceiver is limited by the
OD.C., thecmtenna is a very important fac-
tor affecting transmission distance. It is for
this reason that we strongly recommend
that you install only a quality antenna in
your new CB radio system. Youhave pur-
chased a superior quality transceiver.
Don't diminish its performance by in-
stalling an inferior antenna.
Only a properly matched antenna system
will allow maximum power transfer from
the 50-ohm transmission line to the radiat-
ing element. We recommend that you use
an SWR meter when installing your an-
tenna. Set your PRO S20e to channel 20
and make adjustments to the antenna un-
tilthe meter reads as close to 1as possible.
Your Uniden dealer is qualified to assist
you in the selection of the proper antenna
to meet your application requirements.
For automobile installation, the whip
antenna may be used with good effect.
The most efficient and practical installa-
tion is a fullquarter wave whip antenna
mounted on the rear deck or,fender top,
midway between the rear window and
A short "loaded" whip antenna is more
convenient to installon your automobile,
although the efficiency is less than a full
quarter wave whip antenna.
For marine installation, consult your dealer
for information regarding an adequate
grounding system and prevention of elec-
trolysis between fittings on the hull and
Connecting the Power Cord
With regard to the connection of the
power cords, it may be possible or de-
sirable to connect the red lead (for nega'-
tive ground systems) or the black lead (for
positive ground systems) to the ignition
switch accessory terminal so that the radio
is automatically turned off when the ig-
nition switch (key) is turned off.
Alternately, the power lead may be con-
nected to an available terminal on the fuse
block or even to a point in the wiring
harness. Care must be taken, however, to
guard against a short circuit condition.
When in doubt, please contact your ve-
hicle dealer for specific information about
gative ground system, while some older
cars and some newer larger trucks may
use apositive ground system. A negative
ground system is generally identified by
the "-" battery terminal being connected
to the vehicle motor block, but if you can-
not determine thepolarity of your vehicle,
NOTE: This radio may be installed and
used in any 12~voltDC negative or posi-
tive ground system.
Negative Ground System
Ifyou are operating on a negative ground
system, connect the red DC power cord
fromthe radio to the positive" + " battery
terminal or other convenient point and
connect the black power lead,to the chas-
sis or vehicle frame, or the negative" - "
terminal of the battery.
Positive Ground System
Ifyou are operating on a positive ground
system, connect the black DC power cord
from the radio to the negative" -" bat-
tery terminal or other convenient point
and connect the red power lead to the
chassis or vehicle frame, or the positive
" + " terminal of the battery.
