Base New Imax wont tune 11m....this sucks

I have been trying to find a seller and noboby seems to have any?
As I posted in the other thread about the same thing, It's not difficult. Copper electronics has the whole antenna in stock. If you're trying to find the stand alone section forget it, and buy the following.

The extra piece called the optimizer maybe good for 10 meters, but not 11 meters. Antenna does not tune good on 27.601...1.5 swr...27.791-1.2 swr....27.991...1.1 swr.
If you add power the swr will be beyond the good range of 1.3-1.5 swr. Without the 12in section the swr is high on all cb channels. I have had this antenna since July and it has been a nightmare for my setup

So what you are saying is you purchased the ProTrucker 10 in replacement whip and it tuned great for the 11 meter band?
 
And the required coupling nut, yes.
I've put 1000 PEP through it and I think it was a 1.4 SWR? It was 1.2 barefoot I think. I COULD get it lower but I never readjusted the rings. The expansion piece lowered the SWR on its own when I slapped it up to test I had a thats good enough moment and just left it. I never bothered retuning as it works fine. Once I get my ham lic I may retune for more center 11/10.
