I was QRV on 17 meter but forgot to put on my automatic tuner. After one successful QSO with LZ0M I saw a reading of 1:4 on my S-meter. I was only running 20 watts. Conditions were a little bit better than in the early hours today. EK3GM was a new DXCC with JT65A. Tonight I watch the soccer game between the Dutch national team against Bayern Munchen (German club).


  1. Hello Paul, a lower power is no problem as long as your signal is well above the noise. 73, Bert

  2. Hallo Bert, ondanks een slechte SWR een prima qso. ;-)) gelukkig is de rig beschermd tegen een echte forse SWR. 73 Paul


Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. 73 Paul
