TNX for your comments.
I didn’t know of such club but thank you for the warm welcome!
Well, purists…I’m not!
I must to explain it better. It’s an impedance transformer with the ratio of 1:64…The references of some other OMs that “paved the way” are in the article to enlight this.
I believe that the radiating end of the antenna is the one far from the feedpoint.
The lengthy/lossy/weighty cable (RG-174) avoid me to do not use a counterpoise.
With the MTR is use a less lossy lenght of rg-174: 5m.
Anyway, I try it in the past (EF “long wire” with ATU) and it works flawless.
I try it again last Sunday (this set) and it worked.
Well, if it works…
And, like you say, one must have fun!
