2:1 Vhf Swr
I just installed a new Raymarine DSC VHF.
I have a mast top antenna with a balun. It looks like it's a 1/2 wavelength, 36 inch antenna.
When I was a HAM radio operator, I always tried for a 1:1 SWR. I measured mine at 2:1 using a SWR Bridge.
Anybody else ever measure their SWR?
I think 2:1 is not bad, but I was just wondering what others are seeing.
If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble.
