I couldn't find a cable ID number on the "link" to the SWR bridge, so I cut about 18 inches off of the feed line, gave both lines a new connector and tried for SWR. Same result so the "link" must have matched impedance.

I might be reading the SWR scale wrong.
Above the top scale it starts at 1.
4 small lines and then 1.5,
4 small lines and then 2,
1 small line half way to 3,
Then a red thick line to "SET."

Under the top scale line it's 1.
Under the 1.5 it's 4,
Under the 2 it's 11,
Under the 3 it's 25,
Then the red thick line goes to the end. ("SET")
 
Am I reading the SWR correctly? (I may have to invest in a two needle unit.) Hi.

Using a 2 meter unit I get the same results. I am stumped!
Any ideas??
