Thanks Phil, I’ll try hooking the scope up to the wire antenna when I get a chance. I did try clipping the scope probe (directly) to the wire antenna output but the auto-tune wouldn’t calibrate. I’ll try hooking it to the wire insulation.
Right now, I’m trying to set up this TH to test different antennas, so I was figuring on using the 50 ohm dummy load as a baseline and getting into the black art of antenna matching. I was really hoping for some poor man’s way to test SWR without buying expensive test equipment.
