My CB usually has problems with the loose nut behind the microphone, lol!

Good thread, but I have a question. I tuned the length of my Firestik FSII-3 antenna by setting FWD on channel 1 and 40 until they showed the same SWR, which came out to about 1.8-1.9. Is correct and is that as good as it gets?
