General Tips

Just a list of a few things that I’ve discovered, along the way. Following these tips may make life a little easier for you. I’ll add to this list as the need arises.

  1. Always check to make sure that the SWR meter is hooked up correctly. If you hook it up backwards and you’ve been drinking, things might turn out bad. This also includes the tip: Never trim an antenna if you’ve been drinking.
  2. If you have a roof mount antenna, and it snows, clean off the roof before transmitting. Yikes!
