Re: SUCESS!



Hey, when I first got my arrow, I used two of Radio Shacks 6ft BNC ended
cables ( which I think were 75 ohm) to connect to my HTX 404 & 202 as well
as with a simple tee when using FT-530. Worked great. Had Intermod problems
form Xmitters to my east on the Yaesu. So I had to use the two units for my
eastern passes. When using the Tee, I was still able to work horizon to
horizon (Hawaii at less than 2 degrees) with out much difficulty. Bought the
duplexer when I got my FT-51R (it had no problems from the xmitters to the
east). I have occasional problems from TV ch 19 to NW, but that is rare.
