Title: Diamond V2000 won't work on 6m...!
Post by: PE1RLN on February 21, 2002, 10:52:44 AM
Hi folks,

I bought a Diamond V2000 antenna and it works great on 2m and 70cm but on 6m there seems to be a slight problem:

An SWR of 1:3 in the middle of the band (51 MHz) but on 43 MHz it has the right SWR of 1:1 I discovered.

I mounted it on the balcony of my house on the rail. Is this the problem and how can I fix it?

Do I need to shorten the radial for 6m or should it be longer? Or do I have to remove it further from my house (eg. with a fibreglass pole???).

Please, help me with this awful problem I wasn't able to solve.
