tdukes Posted September 21, 2022 Report Share Posted September 21, 2022 Just an FYI, your mileage may vary! I bought this meter due having issues with a Latnex meter not correctly calculating SWR. Seems the Surecom is no different. Apparently, the newer models have this issue. Older models do not. Contacted Surecom about this and they are playing dumb when I presented evidence to back this up. I'm not a radio expert by any means but I feel I'm pretty confident I can read a cutting chart by a antenna manufacturer and can measure twice and cut once. I don't think I can get the SWR to 1:1 on two antennas. If so, I need to buy some lottery tickets. I think its an issue with the advertised frequency range. I checked it on a ham frequency of 146.52 and got a 1.72 SWR. Some of that could be the antenna isn't tuned for that frequency but it shows it can report something other than 1.0. This antenna was checked with a NanoVNA that was calibrated just prior to the test. Notice the difference in SWR. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
