Just received my first CB rig, with all the bits and pieces to go with it. I'm setting it up tonight and I have New Toy syndrome in a major way!!
Just curious, though - I have a Thunderpole Atom antenna, which has a seperate base-loaded coil, into which fits the whip.
It's pre-SWR'd anyway, but on the off-chance that I need to adjust it, how do I do so?
There's a grub screw that secures the whip into the coil, which I though was the main point to adjust it, although there is only about 1/8" of play in it.
However, it looks like there's also another grub screw at each end of the coil itself, beneath the shrink-wrapped plastic coating. I read somewhere (oh, that fatal phrase) that I would have to peel off some of the plastic and cut the wire.
Which is correct and which of the three screws would I need to adjust?
