I have found is that
my Alpha bumps up the vswr a little. When the linear is in bypass the xcvr
shows a different vswr
reading than if I remove the coax from my switch and measure with the AEA
unit. Again the reason
being is that the linear bumps up the vswr a little. Not sure if this is
your condition but one to
consider. 73 Pete N4KW, Inverness, Fl.
