Hello. Proxymark3 easy isn't so

Hello all.

I recently picked up a proxmark3 v3 easy.  Flashing with windows 10 was a bit of a mess but my fedora system handled it well enough once I got all the needed packages to build.  After flashing bootrom.elf and fullimage.elf  all looks well

uC: AT91SAM7S256 Rev D
Embedded Processor: ARM7TDMI
Nonvolatile Program Memory Size: 256K bytes. Used: 194722 bytes (74%). Free: 67422 bytes (26%).
Second Nonvolatile Program Memory Size: None
Internal SRAM Size: 64K bytes
Architecture Identifier: AT91SAM7Sxx Series
Nonvolatile Program Memory Type: Embedded Flash Memory

But when I attempt 'hw tune' I get the following.

proxmark3> hw tune

Measuring antenna characteristics, please wait.........
# LF antenna: 36.85 V @   125.00 kHz
# LF antenna: 36.30 V @   134.00 kHz
# LF optimal: 39.88 V @   129.03 kHz
# HF antenna:  0.00 V @    13.56 MHz
# Your HF antenna is unusable.
Displaying LF tuning graph. Divisor 89 is 134khz, 95 is 125khz.

No GUI in this build!

This unit has the integrated HF antenna on the board, and LF antenna attached to the front.
The lf seems to work well. I was able to read, clone and read again some hid cards.  But the HF seems to be busted.

Is there any way to self test or verify the hardware with respect to hf ?
