I recently put together a WARC-7 for Chet Moore, N4FX and
had the exact same problem.

In fact, FORCE 12 had to send another one to him...which is
still in the box.... and he is a little gun shy to say the

I sent out an email to every FORCE 12 WARC -7 owner I knew
and they all said they had NO problems with PLUG AND PLAY
with it...so I think you and Chet may have gotten a funky
The strange thing is that EVERY SINGLE measurement was
OH yeah...FORCE 12 even sent us a BRAND NEW driven
element...and that did not solve it either...
IF you get yours figured out...LET US BOTH KNOW!....
We both have lots of other FORCE 12 antennas, and have not
had a single issue with them..
Good luck amigo!
