Firestik KW series is the original Firestik that dates back to 1975, before the tunable tip was invented.
Most people in the CB business believed that this antenna would be made obsolete by the easy to tune tunable tip models.
However, the popularity of the original never went away. Many decades later the sales of Firestik KW-series versus FS-series is still 50/50.
TUNING OF TRIM-TO-TUNE MODELS:
1) Remove cap.
2) With blade/knife make vertical slits into tubing at top of stick (about 1-1,5 cm long).
3) Peel back tubing to expose wire coil.
4) Trim from end of wire, then push wire back into place.
5) Replace cap.
6) Measure again the SWR.
7) Repeat process as needed until antenna is in tune and has good SWR reading.
FACTORY ADVICE NR 1:
These are ground-plane dependent antennas. They require a metallic counterpoise to perform properly. They are not suited for use on non-metallic (composite) verhicles or those with insufficient metal. They can be used to build a base station antenna if a ground-plane is provided. When used with a transmitter (versus a receiver) these antennas should be tested and tuned asross the radios operating frequency. Using an untested, untuned antenna for transmitting can damage the transmitters circuitry.
FACTORY ADVICE NR 2:
Groud-plane dependent antennas require mounting brackets and antenna stud mounts that are grounded to a chassis ground point. Powder coating, paint and or anodized surfaces are insulating coatings and must be removed down to the metal surface where ever a grounding point is required.
• And dont forget ... ALL antennas, regardless of style or manufacturer, MUST be tuned after installation on the vehicle. Transmitting antennas are not plug-n-play devices.
