heh, lol. maybe I should set the exciter for 11m and see if i get 1:1 swr on 10 or 15m . But more specifically - ok, it says exciter to 80W CW. Ok. But do I bother trying to tune the plate/load settings at all? Or is that it expecting that I can somehow tune the thing with the cover off (and upside down, because yes don't run 3-500Z's sideways) quickly enough that the sheer mismatch I'm seeing won't cause issue?
