problem? I have had good results with the mount when using other
hamsticks but I just could not get this to pan out. Any more idea's. I
could just order a 17 meter stick. Hey,but what fun is that!

Q1: What sort of SWR do you see with the 15M stick on 15M?

Q2: What does "no luck" mean? Does the 259B tell you that it's resonate above or below what you want?

On some hamstick type whips if the whip section is too long and a lot of it is shoved down inside the coil it acts like a tuning slug in the coil and it can do all sorts of things you don't want. You might also try putting the whip out at its longest length and see where the antenna is resonant. Could be it's just w-a-y too long.

Try using the original stinger (15m) and tune it with an ASTU?

It should work fine, maybe even better than a 17 Meter Hamstick since you may end up with less coil and more straight radiator.

Dale:

For some reason, I've been getting duplicates of your emails through the 4 states group.  I got this last one 4 times!  Yesterday's net announcement came twice.  Is there something going on with your email server?

Hope to eventually check-in to your Tuesday or Thursday net.

Re: 7122 Crystals

I did not pre-order a set of these crystals. If there are any unclaimed sets could I please purchase one or two sets?

My Pig Rig oscillator reached 7122 without any modification, just needed to set

If you have any questions or concerns about it, pse shoot me a note.

More and more Pigrigs, and also Cyclones are converging on 7122, and QSO's are
taking place. Join the fun. 7122 has become the Group's 40M QSO frequency of
choice. Often one can hear " 4" being sent in place of "CQ 4SQRP" How cool is
that? Give it a try.
