Set unit up today but nothing heard?
Tested SWR but no problems. Key up and shows transmit power.
Is my aerial setup wrong?
I have a steel post of 6ft in the ground, connected to a plastic post,approx 6ft.
Connected to that is a silver rod half wave.
Should I remove plastic post and replace with a steel one?

Might just be nothing on. If you're hoping to see if there's any DX try one of the WebSDR receivers to see if they're picking up anything.
