    Are you able to check the SWR?
    Can you use a repeater, in your area?

    Just to start to bottom this out:

    1. Which band are you trying to use (approximate frequency)?
    2. Was this radio working ok, before it was installed in the aircraft?

    Hi, Elam.

    I agree with Brendan, with regard to the routing of the antenna; sometimes though, you have to route it wherever you can, and your options may be few.

    Hi, George.

    You're dad is a fortunate man, if you can spend that much on him, to improve his activities.

    Looking at the antenna that you mentioned, unless I'm misreading the manufacturer's page https://www.hascall-denke.com/project/20-120-mhz-1y05150-mvmp20x6/, it would seem that the antenna is...

    Thanks, both.

    My inexperience made me think that digital would be easier to read, and more precise; thank you for putting me straight. Ok, back to analogue/ guages. :-)

    I'm looking to buy a VSWR/ power meter for my shack. I'm confused by all the options.

    I'd like something that works 'in line', rather than occasional attachment.

    My main interest is...

    Hi, Phil.

    Thanks for your reply. I don't have an HF rig yet, so look forward to that option. As you say, the WSPR will work without an ATU, and results have been good, so far.
