Test if your Pennant is working

I built a pennant for 160 exactly per the K6SE articles and I purchased a K1FZ matching box, but it is so quiet I'm not sure it is working.

Tom Rauch, W8JI: You should hear a definite increase in noise level on the narrowest selectivity you plan on using at the quietest time of the day you expect to operate when the antenna is connected.... as opposed to being replaced with a dummy load of the same impedance.
If your system does not pass that test, it has a problem that can cost you weak signal reception.
