Hygain Beam antenna

 For some odd reason, the SWR is changing on the antenna. Not sure why either, unless the RFchoke I made is a bad chunk of COAX somehow. It will give a decent reading (2:1 or less), and a few minutes later it will give a 5:1 or more reading on the meter. I have tried moving the RF choke around to different spots, and even just let it hang, and it is still doing the same thing. I will not be able to put this darn antenna up until I figure this out, otherwise I will be climbing back and forth on the roof every couple of minutes, trying to make adjustements. FUN FUN FUN
