Just bought a Wilson Little Will as I didn't want a large Antenna Mobile.
Problem is I cannot get the SWR below 3.
Other Antennas I have on the same location (Car Roof) are fine and easily tuned no probs.
Anybody got any advice?
Thanks.

There seems to be a lot of replacement whips on the market - I wonder why? any answers for Clouddancer?

yes Little will set p for AM out of the Box so needs cutting down but remember once you cut it you cant stick it back on just small bits at a time

Many thanks for the reply about my Wilson Little Will.
What I forgot to mention is the SWR is well over 3+ on all Channels.
Would I be right in thinking there is a short somewhere.in the Antenna. :(

Hi with reference to Wilson little Will and SWR Probs.
Took Stampman;'s advice and cut it.
Eventually got it sorted.
Thanks.
