SWR Really this good?

Ch 1 = 1.2
Ch 19 = 1.1
Ch 40 = 1.3

Cobra handheld and a 4' Firestik. SWR never got higher than 1.5 on either low or high end during adjustment. Balancing out so I didn't have a low channel or high channel that was really different - this is what I got.

Is it really "perfect"? Nothing for me is ever "perfect"! Can this be right?

Mark

That is just a touch better than I got with my 4 footer. I was pulling my hair out trying to tune a 3 foot firestik, and just couldn't get good numbers. The tech at firestik was kind enough to let me swap it for a 4 foot. MO-BETTA!
Got some great numbers. Now the problem is trying to get someone to give me a radio check. The truckers in SoCal won't pick up their mic's. Usually you can't shut them up. Maybe I'm having radio probmems
