Howard,

Just watched you latest Youtube upload, very interesting. i also found adjusting the radial kit helped with the SWR but only seemed to affect the 40 and 80mtrs. I ended up with the following results.

1.2 80mtrs
1.1 40mtrs
2.1 20mtr
All the higher bands needed ATU to tune to 1.1
It's all a compromise but the winging neighbours an landlord seem to accept it and not noticed it getting higher every month or so Very Happy

I found the higher i mounted the thing the SWR on the high bands improved.

Hi swadeyboy
Cheers for looking at the latest vid yes it was a trifle dodgy today as the wind was starting to pick up lol.any how's got the SWR down better even with the atu inline it's 1.1 all bands can't complain at that and like you I have neighbours who are very nosey and also not had the landlord moan yet but technically it's on a bracket on someone else's sky dish 👍so until then it's staying there.as for receive now seems abit better will see how it pans out.
