    Thanks for stating that, I was tempted but didn't go there.

    I don't see anything there that would make me think that.

    I've seen CBers with lots of home built stuff and expensive equipment, and yet they were still utter morons who embraced all the fallacies that abound among those folks. Some became hams, and still embraced those beliefs, then whined because they keep blowing up amps and radios.

    ] Some were trolled but some trolled the troll.

    Personally since i found this product my swr's problems are in the rear view mirror.

    As mentioned by others, you will have to add radials to your setup. Three or four. Conventional theory says about a hundred and two inches each, but you are using a shortened radiator, so they probably have to be shorter than that. It's actually easier to build a full wave loop(37 feet) or an inverted vee(about a hundred and two inches per leg, depending on the angle between the two legs). If you have a balun and build the loop or the vee, use it, but you might try it without one first.

    Guilty as charged. A well-played troll post in the classic style.

    Hey, be careful with that stuff, someone might have pealed off the UHF sticker, you want the CB grade, 11 meter stuff - don't take their word for it!
    Chicken fat works as a temporary six to keep it slick so the SWRs slide easier...

    In all seriousness, bond the braid of the coax to the pipe you mounted the antenna to, for a vertical dipole.
