i intall my tb6em in  one of my tower just to check swr because the first test 
was not very confortable, show the swr in the high part or up the ham band of 
15 and 20, the 10,  is  around  28.6
 for me is very short the  antenna, here in mexico use a lot the 14.100-14200 
section like  a lot in europe for phone , also the 21.200-21.300 ,  in that 
region of the band the swr is at least 1.5,  i check all in the very simple 
manual , looks all ok, there are not other holes tha make shorter the  antenna 
or any other modification from the previos owner, obviusly this is a second 
hand antenna , i got 10 years old when was builded..  for that reason , i will 
add some u-clams to each section of the 15m band to see if i can low the  
resonance to 21.2 ,  and i will add a pipe at the end of 20m.

i will share my results.  if any one have and idea or similar problem , let me 
know to see another possible path to lower the resonance of the freq.

tnx to all
