    It's talking about setting your SWR. You will need a meter, some radios have them built in but duno how acurate they are as aposed to an inline meter.The tip of your firestick will have a shaft that slides up and down after loosining the set screw.You want the lowest reading on the SWR meter you can get by positioning the tip up and down.
    Cobra has been around for a long time, there are allot of other types depends on how much $$$$$ you want to spend!!
