Stan -

  Running a Mac computer with Boot Camp with Time Machine backup on an outboard HD.

73, Dave WI1S

You made no mention of using a Mac in your original Post. This could be your problem. Trying to run Windows drivers on a Mac.

Stan, there are no problems running windows on a Mac, he has it set up to dual boot between OSx and Windows. My Mac mini actually runs Windows better than my old PC.

Forgot to mention... Why multiple metering...

I like to have a watt meter before the amp to accurately set drive wattage. The meter before the amp is almost never set to "SWR" position. The SWR meter on the XCVR will be sufficient to alert me if anything goes whacky.

"peak the grid - dip the plate"
"less filling - tastes great"

Take it easy on your self... Some days I walk in the shack and "forget" why I'm even in there.

In reality; where a meter is placed in a system can indeed vary what SWR levels are. As well, multi-check points are bound to produce slightly different readings.

Try this:

XCVR-----SWR/PWR-----AMPLIFIER-----SWR/PWR-----ATU-----ANT

in some band segments, my SWR between the two meters can be off by as much as .3 - so 1.1:1 before the amp and 1.4:1 after the amp. I would attribute this to the tuned input of the amp being ever so slightly mistuned for "that segment". Being that the solid state transceiver also has a built in SWR meter, this adds yet another meter to ponder upon.

Makes the old "Dip the plate-Peak the grid --SWR, what's that?" Iron and glass sound like more work, but really isn't kind-of call us back to the "magic" it used to seem to be.

There was a ham that made a youtube vid of building his cage. I ran into it about a year ago in a link that someone posted. Google cage antenna in google vids and you should find it.

Does anyone have an example of a cage antenna for HF?

I beg to differ that long wires "generally suck". Are there better antennas? Of course but that doesn't mean you can't have fun. You may have to work harder but they definitely work. I achieved DXCC and WAC with mine.

Does it change in pitch/frequency?

My thoughts here is two fold. Solar cells is a good back up and a small wind based generator.
