Hey guys, newbie here.

I have a SS 6900n and a SIRIO omega 27 antena that i just got today.

Wile trying to SWR tune the antena i noticed it kept going in to red reading > 3 no mater how i adjusted the length of it. Then i turned the RF power knob to minimum, and managed to tune the antena to 1.1 on chan 1 and 1.6 on chan 40. But then i only get 2 lines when transmitting.

My question is : should the RF power affect the SWR ?

Thanks in advance !

the omega 27 needs a fair bit chopping off it to swr so turn power up full and start cutting the whip down about 3-4 inch's need to come offf the reading will cover am and fm and be below 2 on all fraq
