Re: Antenna analyzer/SWR meter

I am very happy things are working out in respect being able to check the swr on the antenna !
To be quite honest !
I find that to be asked the question !
How do I check the SWR on a antenna , I just built ?
Is to me quite a difficult and I think impossible question !
When I install a antenna !
I feel in effect I am really setting up a whole new station !
I have to get the antenna where I want it to be , before I could even do any SWR testing that might be of any value !
I mostly use a dip meter as a antenna creating tool !
A will quit what I am sure some will think as babbling here !
For what I know I am quite sure my antennas are in fact SWR making machines !
I am sure if I could measure SWR at different places along my feedline I would find very large amounts !
Especially since I run my antenna on every band from 80 to 10 meters
I am sure SWR does not bother me nearly as much or in the same way as most !
What does matter is coupling my antenna to my rig !
I am not a fan of Auto Tuners !
We should be tuner tuners and not tuner uppers !
