Steppir group,

I recall a ways back, a discussion of using control cable impedances to
debug a control cable problem.

Right now my steppir is behaving all wacky.  Takes a tuning of 15+ mhz for
20 meters and changes depending upon the 180 or reverse config.  This is
similar to what happened when one of the wires broke off my DB-25 to the
control unit.  This time, the DB-25 is fine.  Can someone forward to me what
they might ave done to see if a control cable wire is broken between my
shack and the antenna?



VERY Happy Steppir Customer
Bellevue, WA
