|Make a repeater?||KC9UNY||2 weeks, 2 days ago|
|You should probably contact the Repeater Frequency Coordinator in your area to see if there are any repeater pairs that are available. There may also be other requirements. You local frequency coordinator can fill you in.
|Extremely high SWR?.||WD4SEU||3 weeks, 6 days ago|
|A shorted PL259 certainly could cause a 10:1 SWR. A continuity check between the center conductor and the shield would be the place to start.
|Another lighting question||on 17/1/14|
|Unfortunately there isn't really anything that will protect you from a direct lightning strike or the damage caused by a direct strike. However you may be able to reduce the likelihood of a direct strike and the subsequent damage by employing the use of surge suppressors and "best practices" grounding techniques. The ARRL web pages have several articles that address good grounding practices. Industry standards such as the Motorola R-56 Grounding and Installation manual is another source of good information.
