Just been playing about with the whip antenna. Although the analyzer says the swr is respectable on all bands except the warc bands, in actual use I can't get any apart from 20 and 40 metres to tune up. Also, upping to ten watts on 20 seems to make the power needle on the Kenwood AT-200 atu fluctuate occasionally, though I did get W4MPS answer me at 12:26. Bet the Italian guys are putting out a bit more than that Hi!

I think I'll play safe and leave the power at 5 watts on both bands whether using jt65-hf or wspr. Don't want to risk a dirty signal going out.
