Re: L on AO40



I use the Directive Systems loop yagi (55 el) with my '736 on L. It is ~60'
of LDF4-50A to the antenna and I use a piece of low loss flex for the
rotation loop. I can hear my SSB uplink running 10 watts output from the
rig. It is not the loudest signal on the band and I have yet to make QSO
with it as the uplink. This may be due to those I was calling not having
quite the same downlink capability...

There are several good amps out there. Being destitute and practically on
the street, I am waiting for a kit to come out that I can afford to play
with. Living in the foothills of Western Maine the only use I have for L is
satellite so the motivation to purchase is not high ATT.
