Use additional packing material where there are protrusions control sticks, large knobs, etc. You can better understand the extent of this effect when you realize that a line with a 3 dB loss will show an SWR of 3: The blue and white label shows the model number and production series number of your kit. If the meter reads higher than 1. When the load is matched, the SWR will be low, approaching 1: Connect the 3″ prepared end of this cable to the cabinet components in the following steps.

Shipping cost cannot be calculated. Capacitors C3, Heathkot, C5, and C6 form a voltage divider circuit to balance the capacitive effects of the bifilar doubled windings in coil L1, which provides correct SWR readings. Pull the bracket down as far as it will go, as shown, before tightening the screws.

I’m going to get a different working swr meter to check the accuracy of this Meter. Solder the leads to the foil and cut off the excess lead lengths. Nearby transmitter in operation.


Therefore, scrape away the colored protective coating from the foil where the small spacer will contact it. Back to home page. Use only one of the two following procedures.

Disconnect the transmission line and place the remote chassis face down on your work surface. Twist the bare wire ends tightly and apply a small amount of solder to each end to hold the small strands together. Mount a coaxial connector on the outside of the remote chassis at A. You can download a manual at heathkig In the following steps, you will install the remote chassis in the cabinet.

A load must be connected to the output jack of the Meter. Cut 4″ from one end of the cable. Kits that have been modified, soldered with paste flux or acid core solder, cannot be accepted for repair. When the switch is set at the SWR setting, the Wattmeter measures the reflected power and indicates on the SWR scale the mismatch between the transmission line and the load antenna.
