RE: RE: [Smartuners] 160m
- I also have a QRO unit, the CG5000 - good for 800w SSB however the SG230
normally gives a better tune on low power.
However, I can't believe the relays are to blame. I have configured 2 x 40m
dipole legs yesterday afternoon and I am achieving almost 1:1 SWR across the
whole of 160m. The unit works, it's just the smaller verticals (less than 40
feet) that give it a difficult time.
I know my friend had the same problem on 160m.
