Revisiting the LDF5-50 MagLoop

I’ve had a lot of fun using the LDF5-50 based MagLoop. By adding and swapping one or more high-voltage doorknob style capacitors it’s been possible to cover the 80m <> 20m bands. The only two negative things being that the … Continue reading

QRSS – Ultimate3 MEPT

Having set up an Argo based Grabber to support some QRSS tests I was soon keen to see what I could do with a relatively simple very low power transmitter, or Manned Experimental Propagation Transmitter (MEPT), and my W3DZZ inverted-V … Continue reading
