        Good evening everyone. Newbie to ham having just passed my foundation a few weeks ago. I purchased a new setup and part of that included a moon raker MRQ 525 dual band antenna. For the last week I have been pulling my hair out trying to resolve…when on 2 metres I am opening up local repeaters and getting 59 signal reports. On 70cm I can only receive clearly – transmit is fades in and out. I received my first SWR meter and it’s puzzling… I have SWR of 1.2 on 2 mtr but SWR of 3.15 on 70cm! Does this antenna have a specific tuning screw for each band? Grateful for any advice? Thanks M7FYY.
