    I've recently installed a CB radio in my RV to monitor road issues while traveling. The antenna was installed by the RV manufacturer (Tiffin) on a fiberglass roof. I'm unable to get below 3 when trying to reduce reflective power by using the stinger with the antenna. Any suggestions on how to reduce the SWR?

    Wish I knew what kind of antenna it is. No markings that I could find. Does have a spring base and I've extended the stinger out as far as possible.

    Dimensions , pictures ?
    Some antennas require radials , maybe the stinger is cut too short .
    The spring base , is most likely a added option & could be interfering , try without .
    If you know nothing about it , then you may have ended up with a damaged antenna ?
