    I tried running a Monkeymade also on a 4 mag set up an the swr's were freakin unreal! NO matter what I tried I could NOT get them down to normal. Hell, I couldnt get a 102" whip to low SWR with the 4 mag set up! Put the Sirio up an have a 1.1-1.3 through all 40 an a 1.4-1.6 on 10m :D Mine is actually a little more to the back than dead center...LOL

    Well swr is resonant 1.1 on 26.700 1.7 on 26.385 I cant remember to make it longer or shorter??? Would like to see about 1.3 or better.

    Needs to be shorter.
    Just remember that 24.9mhz is ~12m (~39 ft); so the wavelength is longer. ~28mhz is 10m (~33ft) and that wavelength is shorter than 11m. 11m is in between.
    Soooo . . . as you go 'up' in frequency/mhz; the resonant length of an antenna becomes incrementally 'shorter'.
