i have the 3 foot firestick but was wanting a 4 foot or 5 foot anyone have any input on what size to get,
Answer this question
"Higher is better" in the antenna world...but as long as it clears the top of the vehicle so as not to block signal is fine...remember you don't want it directly against cab either...I ordered the CALI RAISED tailgate/bed mount for mine
It depends on what vehicle you are installing this on and how much you want it to stick out above the vehicle.4 foot is the most common size customers purchase.

The first thing you do is take the "KW" antenna back to the store and exchange if for a "FS" model. You need an SWR meter to set the calibration. Once you have done that there are several Youtube videos on how to set the SWR. It is really easy.
