    +1 on the tuning; Uncle Eric did mine prior to delivery, but I'll just feel better having it checked again, as well as the 29meg.

    Thinus,

    Please remember that your Uncle in the Radio Business tuned your antenna for midway between the old ORRA 1 and the two new ORRA 2 & 3 frequencies, so it is not ideally tuned for any specific ORRA frequency. Being a quarter-wave antenna, that is perfectly in order but if you wish it to be exact, you may have it tuned for ORRA 2 & 3 only, assuming you will not use ORRA 1. This means cutting it 10mm or so shorter.

    Baben, we found that gripping the antenna whip firmly with a pair of strong pliers just above the point which is the required length and giving a very quick sudden 90 bend to one side snaps the brittle steel whip very cleanly, with no risk of eye damage.

    Hello uncle.

    In that case, okiedokie; we'll keep as is. Will it not be affectd by anything regards the installation on the side?

    Would the 29meg be the same as the VHF or should I ask Bieben to check that with the SWR?

    Theunis,

    By all means let Baben check out your antennas. The 29MHz should be correct as supplied, it is made for 29MHz only.

    If you still cannot talk, let's trade the 'Rok....

    Baben, no problem, I'm just yanking your chain...

    I think I also need a re-tune. I only use Orra 1, and my installer tuned it for optimum over the 8 Orra channels.

    Yes but in your case I know your radio and antenna are screwed up and you aren't using tone
