Do you mean 1.0:1, 1.4:1 and 1.9:1?

If that is what you meant, the numbers are a little unusual, but any time you get below 2.0:1 you are fine. You can adjust it to lower the swr at channel 40, but the swr at channel 1 will increase. If you normally transmit at lower channels, leave it the way it is.

BTW, don't bother checking at channel 20 when doing the adjustment. It is meaningless.

Like Larry says. Anything else is just a waste of time and effort.

I have found that almost all the antennas sold with a CB unit are just fine and need no adjustment.

My 2 cents worth.

Ride On!
