Re: High VSWR on 432 MHz

Hi Julian
Many years ago I had a problem with water in coax on 23cms - strangely it made little difference to my Rx performance but the SWR was rather high and not a lot of it actually got radiated!

What happens if you put a short patch lead in line? I would guess that would alter the SWR the rig sees and might help explain why it sees worse than your SWR meter?
I'm inclined to agree with others that the problem might be worse than you suspect but might prove it either way.........

Good luck
