    I believe the Vesper has SWR meter built in. That will tell you if the antenna and coax to it are ok. The other thing that would stop it transmitting is if it doesn’t have a position it’s happy with.

    Has anyone in the forum tried one of these?

    What might have been.

    A week out from the original start date, windy shows the high far north with a rhumb line racecourse.
    Another fast year? Will we ever see a “normal” year again?
