My VHF radio
M504 does not seem to be given a strong signal. Yesterday in the middle of Georgian Bay I did a radio
check with the coast guard, it was reported that I have a weak signal. 2 at 15 miles from a tower, I could hear the CG with a strong signal
seems to be ok,in general
The radio just came back from Icom's service
center so I have no reason to think it is anything but in good shape.
I take the mast
down each year, so the fittings can get water
over the winter.
Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot and how I might be able to check the antennea system for better performance.
Do I need a SWR meter, if so which one is the best value?
