Two recent 'antenna problem' calls were both due to something wrong in the
shack (bad switch in one case). Sure was a relief to find it was something
that didn't necessitate a (fruitless) trip up the tower or tree. Eliminating
everything between the rig or antenna analyzer and the end of the coax might
be very informative.
