SWR meter

Anyone have a swr meter that they would be willing to let me barrow for a couple days? Went by Radio Shack and they only had a $40 model that still required a $10 plug. $50 seems a little steep and I would rather not wait for one to be shipped to me. Any help with a loaner would be greatly appreciated!!

Hey Steve, I added a quick disconnect to mine, should I have it re-tested?

Yeah I would double check it. You've essentially increased the length of the antenna.

It's probably not bad though.

Thanks, maybe I can meet you before the end of the weekend? I'm going on the trip to Colorado the following weekend, so I may need to buy one if we aren't able to connect (no big deal if I have to buy one). Thanks!

If I could meet you or just pick it up, I remember how to test it and adjust, and then I could get with NM_JK and help him, then get it back to you, if that works for you guys??
