A few weeks ago, I listed my plans for the summer. They seemed all good.
Then I went to the Dayton Hamvention and that changed everything.
So my new plans:
Balanced Line Antenna Tuner
I didn't buy anything to change what I said in the last post. I saw two or three nice balanced line tuners, and they were out of my price range. Having the antenna analyzer might help on this, though, as I can do more tests on the tuner.
Ten Tec Rebel
I intend to buy a Rebel. Then I'm going to add an LCD screen to it so I can see things like the frequency. I went to the Ten Tec booth to discuss that with their salesperson.
There's no changes to this. I do have to build another 2m groundplane antenna, and that antenna analyzer might help a little with that. 🙂
NEW: 6m Mobile Antenna
With differing work schedules for most of the locals I talk to on the repeater and the lack of getting a lot of time on my base/mobile rig, I'm considering moving that to the truck and running 6m.
Removed: Antenna Analyzer and Frequency Counter
The antenna analyzer replaces both of these, so there's no point in me building them right now.
