Equipment Icom 7300 SEC-1235M MFJ-347 MFJ-1699T I'm now starting to think that the MFJ parts I have (347 and 1699T) aren't ideal for what I want. I currently rent a small home and I'm hoping to buy a house this year. So, I am trying to avoid a wire dipole until I have my own house. However, I'm starting to think I should go ahead and get a wire dipole. I don't seem to have any trouble receiving, only transmitting, which I expected. When I transmit my Icom shows a very high SWR, sometimes infinite. So I've been working on getting my SWR lower before I damage something. My radio is in the house and my antenna is outside. I've read a good bit on grounding, but I am having trouble understanding it. There are a lot of really smart hams out there and I'm hoping they can tell me what I need to do for my situation. As I continue to enjoy this hobby, I hope to understand what all this means. For now, I'll settle with safety and enjoying the hobby. I have a 4" choke at the end of the RG8X. How can I properly ground everything, operate safely, lower my SWR, and improve my setup?
