or buy a sierra am-fm-cb single antenna

for less than a second antenna

save drilling holes in your trunk

it installs in a few minutes

and is factory tuned forever

no meters, no worries

and , theres no getting hit in the face by the honda cb antenna when you go into your trunk

SWR should be checked every time an installation is done, even with a supposedly "pre-tuned" antenna. There have been a number of people on this site that have checked their SWR on the Sierra antennas, and found them to be off. A few were actually defective, and the radio could have been damaged if the owner had continued to use it. The unfortuate side effect of this mis-tuning is that the only option is to get a replacement antenna, since it can't be adjusted.

I'll stick with the adjustable OEM antenna.
