Re: long wire

Roger-N0RSR
 

I currently use an EFHW with the Xiegu G90 and get decent results.

However, when I've used the same radio with a linked dipole, I  seem to get better results.

The G90 has a decent tuner built in but the amount of tuning is drastically different between the EFHW(not really resonant on any band) and the linked dipole(cut/tuned to 20/40m). 

I recently ran WSPR testing on a linked dipole and a vertical with a loading coil(similar to wolf river coil antenna) at 200mw, the linked dipole hit DX and the vertical didn't. 

I feel I've dropped a bit of cash on antennas, but seem to keep coming back to speaker wire dipoles connected to a usb to binding post adapter center.

Is this just a pipe dream?  Thought I'd try to get group input before I try this on 40 M.

I used an end fed wire for a couple of months. I always got good signal reports. It did not receive as well as my windom antenna (signals were lower). Also, it seemed like every other day or at least once a week, I had to trouble shoot the antenna to get my SWR back in order. I chose the stability of the windom antenna and replaced it. Hope this is useful. 73’ Leon

You can apply to join any io group, no parents required. Many rig projects have their own group.  Difficulties with rig building is rather common, so check in there for help. 

ID parts can be a challenge. Find a good handheld magnifier. Sort parts to use process of elimination. And ask.

A friend loaned me an eye loop so now I could read all the numbers. Some of the numbers are crazy and don’t match anything in the manual. Thanks for your advise. ’73 leon, n2ded

Re: 80 meter net

Your sigs were in the mud on 40m. Heard an ID or two.  Heard someone from Florida check in so band is long.
Also heard WI5H trying to check in.

80m was better copy but QRN and QSB made for ruff copy.

73/72 and tnx for being NCS tonight
