    Try going here;

    Signal Engineering - The Evolution of High Performance CB Antennas!

    to find out more about that antenna. No idea how it's normally tuned so I can't be any help there.

    (I would advise taking the advertisement with a very large dose of 'salts'! It will transmit, after that, it's a bunch of what you spread on a garden.)

    There are two models for this antenna. What is the length of the one you got 442?

    My Pop use to use the shorter ones on his field trucks and found them to be very effective, but I don't think they showed enough bandwidth to work both 10 and 11 meters.

    I'm also not sure how much adjustment range the wire top hats provided, or how effective they were in raising the frequency to 28.500. I think the antenna was basically designed for 11 meters only...but maybe you could raise the frequency a bit, but I'm not sure about effectively going up to 28.500.
