Guest WRKQ944 Posted March 1, 2021 Report Share Posted March 1, 2021 Newbie here with a informative/question. I recently purchased a NA-771 HT antenna on close out thru Wally World for 7.79 shipped and when I tested the SWR it was 6.4. I didn’t like that so figured for the 7.79 I had into it I would start trimming it down to see if I could improve the SWR. I cut it in 1/4 inch increments until the Swr was below 2.5 and then cut it in 1/8 increments until I stopped at an SWR of 1.4 on Channel 15. It is now at a 6.5 inch overall length which is a 1/4 in. Longer than the stock antenna! Haven’t had a chance to do range tests or comparison with stock yet! Question for all you experienced guys is did I do the right thing or did I ruin it and wasted my 7.79? Just as an FYI - I do believe the antenna is a true Nagoya and not a knock off as it was in a orange sleeve and has a Blue name/number on antenna base. Thanks to all!
