I have both the Larsen tri-band antennas (one with and one without the spring) both are 16 inches from the whip base to the tip. The spec shows they are 16.5 inches. Question should I extend them to 16.5 or leave them at 16?
They are primarily intended as antennas for multiband transceivers. That would mean anyone installing them for transmitting use would put them on an antenna analyzer and properly tune them before use.Thanks, was just wondering why Larsen states a 16.5 inch whip and then ships them with a 16 inch whip.
