Back and good to be home…Lost a few kilos I think. Worked a bit of skip into 43 div but think I need a new Antenna with more gain for Europe. Steve brought back the DX1600 amp that got looked at in the states and she is hooked up and crackling along with 850WPEP out for 30W in driven with the Magnum 257. 100 amps in @ 13.8V DC. 4 fans on top keeping her cool and the auto tuner keeping the SWR below 1.3 so all should go well. Lost 2 trannies out of 8 operating into a 2:1 swr a month ago, which was a bit silly of me. Texas Star fixed it for free bless their kind hearts. Billy 91SD002came around with the latest SD book and we will team up for the www contest in a couple of weeks….Should be good fun!
