Its great on receive

Make a PAC-12 antenna or the G3ycc whip or get a Qrpguys whip for 20m

I have made some great QSOs with the MFJ-1820t 4 ft whip but I am sure its the counterpoise doing all the work

RM0L has been verified via qsl on 20m

I have had 2 of them and they just never worked the way I expected
John VE3IPS

Forget these on shorty antennas 40m unless your on cw

Good morning Dr Jim,
I tried one with my FT817 many years ago in the UK (I was born and raised in the UK) an was completely disappointed with it. Did a couple of "local" contacts on 20m, added a counterpoise, to the radio ground screw, but not much improvement. My 2c worth for what it's worth, stick with the wire.
Be blessed and have a grand day,
Wayne - NQ0RP - G0JJQ - G6UIT

That Banner should be part of the Resource Page...….. be a shame to loose it in the archives of newsletters.

Good tips,

Re: 75A

I worked for over 30 years as an electronics technician, and that's the first three-legged transistor I've seen with lettering on the back side of the device! I can see where this situation could be confusing. In my opinion, you have Q2 installed correctly. When you look at transistor datasheets, the manufacturer shows the pinout according to the shape of the device, not the lettering.

Interested in your experiences and tips using the FT-817 and MiracleWhip antenna

Dr Jim Kennedy
 

 

I am very interested in your experiences and tips using the FT-817 and MiracleWhip antenna either indoors or out? Did you use a counter poise and if so what length? Also, distances confirmed using this setup.

I have used on CW and have logged QSOs of over 450 miles with simple 23' wire counterpoise on 40 meters.

Look forward to hearing your experiences.
