Re: Antenna analyzer/SWR meter

John T. Fitzer

Well the answer to your question depends,

1.      What type of antenna are you making?

2.      What is the intended frequency of operation?

3.      Is it to be fed with 50 ohm coax?

4.      Is it a full size radiator or a shortened version employing loading of some sort?

Pleas provide some specifics and maybe I can help

What do you all suggest for a new ham to do, to check out the SWR on an antenna he just built?  I really don’t have many Elmer’s around me to ask.  I probably should make the stupid antenna and take  to the ham fest where I am taking my general exam and see if someone has one.
