I have been mulling for a while over purchasing a Par End Fed, but the cost put me off considering what's involved, so I set about building one – I sent off for some T200-2 torroids so I could play with baluns, and also splashed out on the SRCX65 from Snowdonia Radio Company – I will be able to set these up and run comparisons once mine is finished, it certainly wont be over this weekend as the weather forecast is not looking too good, but I cannot wait as I (Hope) . . . I’ll have 80m available – I’m not expecting too much from these antennas but quite a few people are using them with decent results, (we’ll see) but if they work out I’ll leave one of them up – like everything else here, It’s an experiment – will post results when I get set up.
I’m not particularly a “DX” chaser but glad to work whatever I can, and last night I missed out on 7Z1CQ in Saudi on Psk, he popped up a couple of times but he disappeared into the ether !
