I am a bit confused with the power reported when tuning the KX1.
Today I used a Maldol whip. While tuning the rug reported power of 6 with an SWR of 4. I had no luck do I went to my car with a ham stick. With that antenna was getting a power of 0.8 abc SWR of 4. So why is this? The power does not really matter since neither yielded QSOs. I am just curious as to how this works.
I have much better antennas. I am on vacation and my options are severely limited.
