Hi All,

I am actualy repairing a FL2100Z for a friend of mine.
It had several problems i fixed but one is still left.
When in normal use, the SWR between TX and amp is very high on ALL bands.
I cleaned the input relay and checked 14 MHz input filter capacitors, they are close to their nominal value. So the problem is somewhere else.

Searching with Goooogle, i've read on several posts that a lot of people are complaining about this. Others have no problem...

Does anyone has an idea on what's wrong ?

ps: i use the setup on a dummy load, coax cables are not the problem.

What SWR do you get when the FL2100z is on "STBY" and is connected to your 52 ohm dummy load?  If it is a cabling issue, it should show up with this test.  If it is not a cabling issue, then you should get low SWR, essentially the SWR direct into your dummy load.

I have a Yaesu FL2100z and love it!  I get input SWR of less than 1.3:1 on all bands, and the FL2100z covers a lot of bands!
