Switched my DX-DD to open wire feed today. Using 450 ohm line. I have been intending to do this for several months and finally got the time to do so. I am using an external Palstar 4:1 balun which is mounted under the eave outside the shack window. From there about a 10 foot length of LMR400 coax to the Palstar AT2K tuner. Have checked it out on 40, 30 and 20 so far and works well. Will see if it made 80 a little easier to tune now. Was very narrow using coax prior to the switch.
I have abandoned the wordpress websites for k6rf.net and k6rf.com . I just don’t have the energy and time to devote to maintaining them. All my “Ramblings” about QRP and Digital SWLing will now be included here.
The Old Man International Sideband Society’s QSO party is today. See www.omiss.net for details.
