Hello Tower Talkers,

What is the accepted practice to adjust the SWR on a vertical prior to 
mounting it on the tower?  I don't want to install the antenna, and then have 
to remove it for adjustment.

I have a dual band vertical (2 meters-440 Mhz) that I intend to side mount on 
my tower, up about 40 feet on a 55 foot tower.  I have the antenna on the 
ground, and currently the SWR is high on both bands.

Your suggestions, please.



See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions 
and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
