On the last weekend me and João, CT7ABE, made a trapped dipole for 20, 30 and 40m.
We used the pico traps from Sotabeams, which are super easy to to build and tune and very lightweight.
After we have done some testing with the dipole and the MTR-3b.
The RBN show that is working very nicely but we hadn’t more time to use it on real QSOs.
The traps are now ready for a “proper” SOTA test after liquid rubber coating.
This means a SOTA activation, ASAP…
Anyone have SOTA experience with a trapped dipole such as this one and the MTR or the KX-1 ?
