OK I have calibrated my swr 4 times over the last day and it keeps changing between 1.3 and 1.6.

Today it went to 1.0 and I can't get it any higher than 1.1.

I'm not sure what is wrong.

So long as you're in the 1's, your in good territory. When you start getting readings in the 2's and 3's is when you have some work to do.

Mine wont show below 1, but it would probably get there considering at the highest setting it only gets to 1.4, and it only goes down from there.

^^ Yup if you use it a lot the constant overheating will shorten it's life.

If you are anywhere near Fontana or Ontario there's a "Golden Screwdriver" over by the T/A truck stop that'll fix you right up:thumbup:
