I have a problem with my R7 vertical.
The problem is that I don't have a good SWR at all on all bands....

I solved some problems but the main problem still exists.

1) In the "tuning box" I replaced a C.A rather small one of 27J of 1KV (Is
this 27 pF??) This could be the problem...
2) One load didn't "dip" because the coil didn't measure,I fixed this one
and all loads are "dipping" now...
3) I Cleaned all aluminium tubes with steel wool.
4) Water was leaking in two capacity tubes,this was fixed.
All measurements were done with an MFJ-259 SWR analyser
