MFJ-948 Tuner help/problems KA0RSN on 23/6/15
Thank you Zack! It ended up being the mode I was trying to use to tune. I was using SSB. I switched over to RTTY and it worked perfectly! Embarrassed to admit it, but it tells you to do that right in the set-up portion of the manual. Sheesh. Thanks for your help!

MFJ-948 Tuner help/problems KA0RSN on 22/6/15
Thank you for any information or guidnace you have on this. Please bear with me as a newer operator trying to figure things out and get set up. I have an MFJ-948 Antenna Tuner that I am unsure that it is working properly. It is connected to a G5RV dipole antenna that I built myself. The overall length is 102', with the feedline length being about 35'. I am using an Icom IC-7200 transceiver. While attempting to set up the tuner for certain bands, such as 20 and 40 meter, when I try and see what my reflected power is, both needles on the tuner never move. I have used the recommended starting adjustments from MFJ but I never see a difference. I am using the lowest power setting (30 watts) and have adjusted the setting extremely just to see if I could get any change, but nothing.
Any assistance would be appreciated!!
