Re: Almost dead until tuned ?
This is normal as others have told you because the tuner tunes the
antenna for both the transmitter and the receiver. With a better
match, the receiver picks up more signals. While external tuners do
this, I have read somewhere that the internal tuners on some rigs do
not. They only tune for the transmitter. Another reason to use an
external tuner. 73 Mike KF6KXG
