The Skipshooter antenna has a tuning nail for easy SWR tuning. If the SWR is greater on Channel 40 than on Channel 1, then you have an electrically long antenna and need to make it smaller by pushing in the tip or removing it (if necessary). If the SWR is greater on Channel 1 than on Channel 40, then you have a electrically short antenna and need to pull out the tip (to make it longer) or you can add a spring or quick disconnect to make it longer.
