Antenna Genius High SWR Arcing?
Does the Antenna Genius arc or have other issues when used with feedlines with high SWR and voltage? I run high power.
I have three non-resonant doublets fed with open wire feeders into the shack to baluns and then by coax to the antenna tuner. They often have high SWR before they get to the tuner.
With some high SWR situations, there is very high voltage that can do damage. I have had that happen. I can be running 1,200 watts CW.
My question is not on the quality of my antenna system. It is what it is. I am asking if an Antenna Genius can handle the task.
