Re: QCX acceptable load mismatch?

Well, the best bet is to make an initial "dry" tune -- in RECEIVE mode, adjust your tuner for MAXIMUM noise. This will be fairly close. THEN, key down and work from there. The resistive bridge type SWR meter does provide a reasonable level of protection...  I use a QRP Kits "Z" match tuner in the field with a built in resistive bridge. Just follow the foregoing, then key down and tune for minimum brightness of the LED. You should be able to get a good tune in less than a couple of seconds.
