Hi
My antenna is an hexbeam and it has no swr in 6 bands.
However sometimes i need to speak with my family overseas in 11meters band.
The swr goes at maximum 2.2.

Should i buy AT or sunsdr can handle it with no problems?

Hello
If your swr goes to 2.2 on the 11 meter band, you should be seeing a display of some sort warning you about the high swr situation if the radio cannot handle it. Using an external antenna tuner would be a wise way to go to avoid potential damages to the radio or basically, have a 11 meter antenna dedicated and tuned for the 11 meter band and use some sort of coax switch to interchange between your hex beam and that 11 meter antenna.
