FT 857-D

I converted 3 of the 857D's and I use a battery powered soldering pen I bought at Home Depot with very thin electronic solder. Makes it VERY EASY

Did I mention I have a 10 watt, a 25 watt and a 50 watt iron PLUS the AB? Each has a purpose :LOL:

I knew that would bring a response from you Pat. ;) I have seen a couple radios however that looked like the 100 watt AB was used on them. :shock:
If you notice, It only took Hammer 22 min to respond to my request for help. My radio was sent out today.
That is what this forum is all about. Helping each other.
Hats off to my friend Happy Hammer.

    If the antenna leads of an inverted V dipole are at 45 degrees instead of at 180 degrees, what happens to the signal?
  • @ snippits75:
    @AF7LL At 45 degrees it will be omnidirectional. At 180, horizontal, it will be directional.
