For this qrp activities with a rig without swr meter, I use a endfed antena tunner that tunned throught a variable capacitor or coil, no need swl meter because the perfect tunned is when the maximum noise recepcion.

You can get it the mountain tunner of Sotabeams or the Ilertenna from a spanish dealer.

The ilertenna has a led to sintonize it (minimun bright is the perfect swr tunned).

  The cap of a pen is a great idea.

I attach to the wire a small piece of paracord with a Hanged knot to fit in the físhing pole, It gives no surprises with the mountain high wind.

Good for a entry level SDR but better a second hand 817, if you add the amp, better a KX2

I watched yesterday the video, no glamour but simple and effective.

Some day I will make anything like this for 50 mhz.

Thanks for show us, Gil.

FB Jon.

That one was also made by Youkits. You'll have a lot of fun with it. We should try a contact some time.

Gil.


Yes, I know LNR rigs have more performance but I just paid 160€ for Ten Tec (Youkits).

I hope we meet on the air as soon as posible.

I can't understand why magnetics loop antennas (without remote control unit) are so expensive.

Anyway your video is well made and I like it, like all in your channel.
