    A True SWR Mystery

    The 1st thing I would do would be to remove the amp. when the swr is high, then recheck. Then you will know if it's in the feed line, antenna or amp. It might also be in the radio..........

    What do you call these weird warbling noises?

    These noises are typical for when we get closer to the "peak" of the cycle, they are really more pronounced on 27.555. Chris if you had a beam and would point it towards Alaska, then you would really hear the stronger signals. Lots of FM/AM signals will be showing up from Japan and along the...

    AM High power broadcasting stations in the USA. Which do you listen to?

    Here in Washington, back in the 60's, I could pick up WLS in Chicago. That was on a small alarm clock radio with a wire running from the back of it up to one of the tv guy lines. Summer time only tho.

    RCI 2970DX Receive Help Needed

    I have a 2970N2, got it about 5 mo's after they 1st came out. I have notice the "white noise" is less on this radio than all my other 29750's/2970's dx models. Buy using a "clear speech" speaker from West Mountain Radio, the "white noise" is more tolerable.

    Predator 10K

    Groundhog - I had the same antenna mounted on the roof of my old F150 for about 6 yrs, I was very pleased with it. There are a couple things you should do to make sure that the antenna is really working good. 1) Put a antenna analyzer on it. 2) Make sure all the coils are evenly spaced before...

    30-30 Ammo

    Alabama Buckeye - that's what I also loaded for my 270, I first started with 130 gr. but that was to light, bullet completely "blew up" inside a couple inches on a Black tail deer. I then went up the 140gr and that worked pretty good. I also loaded my '06 with the 150gr B-Tip, excellent accuracy...

    External speaker recommendations

    As everyone knows that running a RCI 2950/2970dx has lots of white noise on ssb, but using a West Mountain DSP speaker can really clean up the noise. I use one on the base and will also use one again in the mobile when "ever" I get one installed again. This speaker really makes the weak signals...

    Ok Handy Andy, I have seemed to have corrected the problem. Although I am not on any other sites where any one can follow me, nor do any sites have my Phone #, but what ever I did in my preference done the trick. Thanks for your help..... DXman
