9:1 unun mounted on a PL-259 connector for tomorrow's Winter Field Day. Fancy pants silver plated teflon wire wound around a T106-2 toroid core. With 500 ohms on the input, I get about 80 on the output at 14ish MHz. SWR is higher than expected, dropping as frequency increases. I'm going to toss this in a tree with ~40' of wire . The internal tuner in the radio should take care of the rest.
After being stuck in customs for a week, I finally took delivery of a 40m QCX kit. Greenie for size reference. #amateurradio
The Replay Foundation, my employer, announced their liquidation today. This means no more Pinburgh. It also means I'm Officially out of a job for the forseeable, so if y'all wouldn't mind boosting a link to my other source of income Improbable Island, that'd be just super.
It's a silly online game and it doesn't pay as much as fixing pinball machines but heck it's what I've got right now, and this winter's probably gonna be a hairy one.
