Re: SWR meter problem on K3

Yep, all of this testing using the K3, the VNA, and Dummy load would seem to point to a coax jumper being used for each test is likely at fault. Could be a PL-259 of which the "new good looking" ones are exactly that "good looking". I have found machine tolerance errors, poor machining, poor plating, not to mention poor installation of connectors. And I have found that finger tight for a PL-259 is not good enough. I always snug with a pair of 4" Channel Lock pliers.
