Propagation is so bad up here my s-meter reads negative.
Guess I'll do stamp collecting.
The magnitude is all that matters, so you're fine.
It's just the Earth's magnetic poles getting ready to flip-flop. No worries.
If the S-meter reads negative, that means that the receiver is actually transmitting.
A weak fridge magnet usually does the trick.
I think negative SWR means that the transmitter sucks.
Your magneto reluctance and capacitive directance have switched polarity. Check with a calibrated Pareto fluxmuster.
Think of all the postage you're saving on sending QSL cards.
