Put up my 205CA this past December and used the "low phone" settings. SWR at
14.000 is 1.7-1, flat from 14.1-14.250, then about 1.6-1 to the top at
14.350. It's at 91ft on guyed Rohn 45G. Top guys are at 85ft and broken up
with insulators. Lower guys are at 45ft and solid. Works fantastic! Good luck.
