    Whoever said good fences make good neighbors, didn't live next to family!

    Looking good! The summer heat should stick it together pretty good. Lots of people around here use it, I am ready for another load myself.

    The driver transistor that feeds the final might need to be replaced too.

    11 meter is very quiet?

    I put another pin on the map with a good contact to South Africa on Sunday. Then later on the conditions rolled around to Australia, we are getting into some great conditions for sure. Yesterday I was monitoring 38 on the drive to take my daughter to work. The channel was clear, then we heard a...

    Where did you get it from? I saw them on eBay a while back and they were over $40. I was going to wait until the price came down before I got one.

    Stryker Sr-955 Version 2

    In the interest of full disclosure, I forgot to add: My V2 was set up by Trucks CB. I will take a peek in the service menu to see if it's maxed out.

    Base Workman M400 Starduster

    I have a Sirio Star Duster on my garage station, 23 feet to the feed point. Works well, I talked to California and Puerto Rico not too long ago. Being a quarter wave, it is short and strong. I never worry about it in the wind like I do with my Sirio Vector 4k at the house. Instead of the sheet...

    Stryker Sr-955 Version 2

    I think the V2 is an improvement over the V1, at least the way that I use it. My v1 was doing about 60w peak and drove my 4 pill X-Force nicely. I suppose that if I had an 8 pill, then 100w peak drive would be nice to be able to do. On the V2, the noise reduction feature works well, although it...

    Possible Galaxy 94HP problem

    I assumed that most 10 meter radios would do this to 28.200 if they were splattering. The most common problem we hear about is 54 MHz, so I figured 28.200 was one of the harmonics generated. If the pll is causing it, then this is a new one for me. That makes an interesting problem for sure, I...

    Possible Galaxy 94HP problem

    Ten meter radios are notorious for this problem when cranked up. A regular cb has filtering to prevent this. He needs to run a low pass filter to attenuate the spur that he is generating.
