A clear explanation of Standing Wave Ratio or SWR. This is what happens when you check out that new antenna on your transceiver.

Now here is a video showing how to maximize your low power (QRP) operations. The signals were enhanced by the fact the antenna was located near salt water. Not everyone has that advantage, but the results are still amazing. Listen to the final comment on the video, where the DX station did not believe Peter was operating at just 5 watts power. The antenna is low cost and can be set up portable as explained in the video. Enjoy.
