I don't know why I did this, but I did. I despise Radio Shack and went in there anyways, buying their discone antenna. I haven't had a chance to check SWR on this thing yet. I'm going to do it tonight. Seems to do pretty well on low band and sucks horribly on 800. I'm curious if any of you know what frequency this thing is tuned for out of the box? I can't seem to find any information on that. Any help would be appreciated.
