BTW, it's important to know that for a 4W CB having an impedance discontinuity is irritating and may damage your radio but when you put 50, 100 or 1,500 watts down the feedline an impedance issue increasingly becomes a major problem. A spike in impedance means that energy gets converted to heat quicker and you melt coax or worse.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
