With proper ID and protocol, it doesn't matter if you're being filmed or on live TV.
ALC voltage range for YAESU FL-2100B Porschetony on 22/8/12
Yes, but you need to start out with it turned down as low as it will go. Then follow the instructions in the FL2100 manual.
Need programming for HX240V WD4PLB on 23/7/12
Good luck!

You'll need the serial programing cable. You can buy that on Ebay for about $30. You'll need the DOS based software, and that's out on the web if you look hard enough. Besides the need for a DOS OS, you'll need a serial port. It will not work with a serial to USB adapter.

This radio went out of production in 1997, if memory serves. Standard has long since declared it a legacy product with no support available.

No mercy needed. MFJ's warranty is solid! Again. Make sure you have the box attached correctly. It is very easy to get it wrong.

I agree with Bill on the coax.

If you're measuring the SWR in the shack, and the antenna has reactance (mistuned), then the reading in the shack could be almost anything. If you know the exact length of the coax feed line, that length can be factored out, and give you the SWR at the antenna.

One thing you want to recheck is the way the black box is mounted, and connected. The instructions are a bit vague, but the pictorial is self explanatory.
