As amateur radio operators, there are a lot of guidelines and ‘best practices’ we should stick to. Whether it’s to protect ourselves, our equipment, or others; the guidelines are there for a purpose.

One good practice requires your antenna to…

  • be as short as possible
  • be over 50 feet in the air
  • have a low SWR
  • be fed with coax

Good job everyone! @alan1369 better luck next time :smiley:

For those interested, I really like Jim’s, W6LG, explanation of SWR. It’s only 12 mins long and pretty easy to understand even for a newbie like me!

Nice video. I suppose I really should get some kind of SWR meter now.
