I have a radio
shack swr. The VHF
at the house will not transmit. I hook up the swr on 3 VHF', all theee do the same thing. Have the mic down, mov the dial all the way up then push switch on calibrate down to SWR. the dial is suppose to drop to 1.5 or so, mine stays up in the red near the top. I am on 200w for switch one. The third switch is on PEP. Middle switch starts at CAL
, then leaving the VHF
micced, switch to SWR.
At home I am using a power pack for 12 volts from 220. I used a meter and it is supplying 12.75 when not micced and 12.75 when the mic is pushed.
Now on the boat
, the same VHF with the same SWR, drops to 1.5 when I switch the push to CAL
On the boat
I am running off of batteries
, home is the power PAC.
Any ideas on what is happening? My transmissions at home can not be heard.
The power PAC I have on wire ,red, coming off the V+ and the black off the V-. Tested the antenna
, on the boat it is fine. Using the same antenna
