    What is a President Thomas antenna? President Thomas is a radio, not an antenna. President names their antennas after states, not actual presidents.

    I think this guy needs to fire his test buddy Chris. Ha. It took me almost the whole video to realize he was calling the signal strength modulation?? Anyway the second to last antenna that had the so-called perfect SWR, his friend Chris said it was the best antenna. I thought it was the worst one because the signal was chopping out a lot. I think the ghost antenna performed the best even with the high 2.1 SWR. Just shows that lower SWR isn't always better.

    Surely you got the decimal in the wrong place. What kind of little pickup do you have?
