SWR is not a problem when receiving, nor is it really a problem with transmitting. People take that SWR being high as a downer. it is but not as much as people make it out to be. Any piece of wire from 3 to 18 inches will work just fine as a receiving antenna from within 10 miles of any big city. I listen to Boston UHF stuff with a 3 inch whip with some limitations but I'm close enough that it isn't an issue.
