Default How do YOU tune a Maco V58?

I remember some time ago the talk about setting the overall length of a V58
to 222" tip to tail. I tried that. It seems you are almost removing about a
1/8 of a wave! Anybody got a close match at 27.205 with the factory setting?
This assumes you mount the antenna at least +18 feet. Have you gotten
the gamma match to flatten out the swr on either end of the band?

Obviously, I'm not at all happy yet with the proformance I'm getting with the
V58 but I still haven't convinced myself it's the antennas fault!

If I can get a good match I'm going to run some A/B tests between it and
a A99. Interested?

Does having the antenna on a 4 foot pole have any effect on tuning the swr or do i need to have it up higher to tune it?
