It is difucult to fry the 3733...




Hi,

Just to let you relax a litle bit when using
the 3733 converter:I have transmited in it, once
via a 6db atenuator,i stopped when the smell of
the resistor become obvious, the second time
directly (without atenuator, but i was using a
tee to connect to other radio via atenuator,that
probably saved the radio),each time with 50W,and
no damage resulted.
I now, that is not very smart, and i have been
very lucky (mostly for the other radio ),but i
thought this is a good thing to now.
The cable i used was about 30m of rg213 (or
equ.).
Very impressive to see how this great converter
can hold 50W that way.
Don´t try it at home,however.
73,Fred.
