What coax extension cable are you using? Can you put a 50 ohm dummy load and check it? Or do you have a different cable to use? Maybe a bad cable? 

I know,  I'm not much help just asking questions.

I recruited a pair of man hands who found that both the quick release to the mag mount and to the antenna were not as tight as they should be. Optimistically I remeasured at the antenna, still 1.0. It made little difference on the PA end of the longer coax, still 5.0 plus SWR.

I am currently stumped.
