Question Radio Shack 20-161 indoor antenna

Found this old antenna that I forgot that I had. Lost chart for tuning for the different bands.
I tried comparing with the chart for the RS 20-006. Not the same. Does any one have the chart? I checked RS web site nothing available.
Thanks for any help.

Don't have a chart but the 20-161 is a 30-512 mgz pull up, 40" high, the 20-006 is a 25-1300 mgz pull up center loaded...Usually VHF is 17 or 18 ", UHF 460 is 5" and 800 is 3"....I have the second or newer one and it works good pulled up about 30" on everything....

Smile clarifaction

Ronin: thanks for the reply. I don't think you are relating to a newer version of the same antenna (RS 20-161). When fully extended =40". When fully collapsed antenna is 15-3/4" from base to top of center coil. The first section is fixed,(non-adjustable). the other 5 sections are telescoping @ 5" per section.
