Please stop by the forum here and introduce your self im sure somebody here can help.
another thing is this:If the SWR on channel 40 is higher than that on channel 1, your antenna is too long.
If the SWR on channel 1 is higher than that on channel 40, your antenna is too short. Are you using a meter using a meter ?

Welcome to the forum. The K30 is a short antenna, not quite 3 feet so adjusting it does create a problem. The best way is to get channel 19 or 20 to the lowest SWR possible then balance out channels 1 and 40 to be the same. Like 295 said the antenna is probably long, most antennas are made that way on purpose, so trimming might need to be done. When trimming cut the whip in 1/4" segments so as to not cut off too much. After you have it adjusted the ends of the band are still going to be higher than the middle because of the antennas design, no getting around it.
