Put some grease on it.
[Joke mode off] Take a signal generator and set s-meter according to specs.

Have you tried turning the right VR to adjust the meter,slacking off small screw on meter slightly ?

Google coppertalk 2995dx signal meter,common problem for these radios,hope this helps.
You can talk worldwide on CB = not 10 - 15 miles,
Some are too far up their own @rse to admit it,
Freebanders happen to know otherwise = test free.

Solution is really simple. Replace D14 with any germanium diode. Recalibrate s-meter. Gonna improve a lot.
