    Dan is jou radio nie reg geprogrammeer nie, of jy is op die verkeerde kanaal. ORRA 1 het 'n sub-tone, as dit reg is dan sal jy geen security en ander ouens hoor nie.

    Been calling all over Gauteng yesterday. No answer
    Roodepoort, Midrand, Rivonia, Centurion, nothing...

    So I went home and checked the SWR on the Rangey's antenna with a new toy I bought from Webb

    SWR was 3 eeeek!

    So after a few snips with the side cutter (and almost losing an eye !!!)

    Please be careful when trimming, guys. This was only 1cm away and it hit me hard.

    Got the SWR down to 1.15

    Which means that almost all the power I am transmitting will now be leaving the antenna instead of 25% of it reflecting to damage my radio.
    When you only have 20W, you need all that power to get out, not just 15W of it.
    In theory it has a similar effect to receive sensitivity, but that's a big technical argument that I will leave to the boffins.

    Antenna tuning day?

    I will take it as a final written warning to use eye protection. That's for sure.

    The weird thing was the cutters were facing away from me. That off-cut had to reverse 180 degrees and it still hit me with enough force for the blood to squirt. The pic I just took this morning, so it's basically healed already. Small hole but deep. In the eye it woulda been tickets
