Here’s a look at an MFJ-849, a nice digital power/SWR meter that MFJ sent me. It works well and has solid quality. It also requires no button pushing to get forward and reverse power and SWR because they’re all shown at the same time. Nice little rig.
Come enjoy Field Day with us! Here are some slides showing Montrose (Colorado) Amateur Radio Club’s Field Day event. The purpose of Field Day, held at the end of June, is to practice using our radios “in the field,” such as for emergency events.
Here’s a great receive-only HF antenna good for stealth scenarios or just putting a receive antenna in a much quieter place. This antenna is the direct cost and performance competitor with the MFJ-1886. The W6LVP loop is better at stealth and ships in a much smaller box.
I’m new to Times Microwave LMR-400 coax cable, often considered the best in ham radio (and rather expensive). I purchased 500 feet for future antenna projects. Learn with me as I attach a PL-259 connector!
Here’s a review of the MFJ-1835H (high power) cobweb antenna. It has a very small footprint and can be a great stealth antenna. I found myself really liking it. Join me for unboxing, assembly, and testing. If you have limited space for an HF antenna, this may be one to look at.
Here’s my review of the Chameleon P-Loop magnetic loop antenna. I show some use cases for which this antenna is particularly suited. The video provides lots of info about the antenna. Thanks to all who participated in my tests last Saturday!
Give me a hand testing the Chameleon P-Loop. I’ll have it set up under portable conditions on Saturday, May 27th, from 10 a.m. to noon US Mountain Daylight Time. I’ll be calling CQ on phone around the bottom of the US General band, meaning 7.175+ and 14.225+.

Why read erroneous material when you can easily see what we really believe?
