    I contacted photovac and they quoted me a pretty good price, it was discounted though I am not sure why, maybe because of my work email. My friend that I got the laser from found the original RF cable and I tried that. Welp, I don't need to send it in after all.

    So apparently length or type is really critical with these. The cable is 2.35m long and made with LMR-400 which I had guessed, the plenum version though. I have some of the flexible version coming tomorrow and see if that works too.

    VSWR sensor is overly sensitive or they are doing something weird with the matching networks.
    Glad to see you have it working.
