Shortening wires, or adding length to wire antennas. A simple method to calculate length.
Report of my recent operation in portable operation using a Yaesy FT-857D and an end-fed antenna.
Planning to setup a double bazooka antenna for 7 MHz during next months to verify performance of the Gap Titan DX on that band. I feel like the GAP is not so well performing on that band and I’m goint to setup for the CW portion of the 40 meters. This is the basic schema
I’ve recently introduced a Raspberry PI 4 as main remote RTX controller for my Kenwood TS-590s. This allows me to control the Kenwood TS-590S from the iMac simultaneously with several applications, including RUMLOG, FLDIGI, WSJT-X. The issue Could not control simultaneously my transceiver directly from two or more applications. Additionally remote connection from the internet

The Clemens match is easy to make and reliable, and is preferable to a single Gamma match as it is balanced. I was first introduced to the Clemens match by G4IGO several years ago, Ken builds his in a slightly different way by putting the capacitor at the feeder end and connecting the far end

FIG. 1 shows the relative gain (loss) of an antenna (e.g., dipole or beam), under varying ground conditions, through the frequency range of 5-30MHz: A represents the curve under perfect ground conditions, B under average ground conditions (i.e., wet grassland), and C under poor ground conditions (dry desert). Note that the influence of ground conditions
How To Read Propagation Numbers The A index [ LOW is GOOD ] 1 to 6 is BEST 7 to 9 is OK 11 or more is BAD Represents the overall geomagnetic condition of the ionosphere (“Ap” if averaged from the Kp-Index) (an average of the eight 3-hour K-Indices) (‘A’ referring to amplitude) over a
