More additions to the household in the form of the MFJ Antenna Analyser - this was one of those must haves and finally got to order one last month but for some reason there had been a delay with my supplier - I had been under the impression that the Psu was supplied with it but no - thats extra, but should not present a problem - so as I wanted to run a check straight away I loaded the rest of my AA size batteries (10 in all) ... ! I was glad to see my 40m dipole which was cut for 7025, dipped around 7012 - and the 6m beam which has been sitting on my garage floor for the last six weeks was mounted on a pole and that came in at under 52 Mhz so needs tweaking - hopefully will get that up next week as I have to change the direction that the mast tilts over for easier access - and requires some drilling (I suppose it will rain next week) ! First impressions of the unit (for the money) I'm not particularly impressed with build quality, I have bought many items in the past and it lacks something, however it's minor and I will not be sitting there looking at it - compare that to the looks and finish of the K3..... does'nt look too bad in the photo but it has rough edges - same with the paint finish, internals same.
