The Firestik KW CB antenna is pretuned at the factory but may need adjustment when installed. If the SWR is greater on Channel 40 than on Channel 1, then you have an electrically long antenna and need to trim a little off the top load wire (very small amounts). If the SWR is greater on Channel 1 than on Channel 40, then you have a electrically short antenna and need to make it longer, the only way to do that is to add a spring or quick disconnect to make it longer.
