I have just received my 897 and am having some trouble getting it tuned.
I am using a G5-RV
Radio is set to USB 20 meter
I am running an ext power supply set at 13.8v
I am also running through an AT-200 pro tuner
Now, my problem when i start the tuning process I hear all the relays clicking but the radio is showing HSWR on the screen.
and the AT-200 is also reporting an out of range SWR.
Question 1. How long can I key the mike without smoking something? I have power set to 20 watts
2. The AT-200 manual says that since the G5-RV has ladder line feed that I must use a 1:1 balun, is this true?
I have seen other posts that have said different.
I have been able to receive a few calls but have made no contact.
Thanks for any help
