    So how does this work again. High on 40 low on 1 lower stinger. Low on 40 High on 1 raise stinger. Some one help reminder, I am so confused. After all my talk about Francis antennas, I just went out and got a brand new Monkey Made that I am going to install Monday. Have to wait till I get back home to Memphis. It stinks having to wait.

    The higher the frequency the shorter the antenna needed. So, if your SWR is better on 1 than 40, your antenna is tuned for a lower frequency (it is longer). Shorten the stinger to bring down the SWR on the upper channels. Always move the stinger toward the best SWR. Better on 1, move it down. Better on 40, move it up.
