80M LC Circuit 

It was easy to get the LC circuit to work, as I have two excellent components. The roller inductor is a Palstar inductor and the variable capacitor is from an Ameritron ATR-30 where I had to constantly fix the edge wound roller inductor, so I junked it and am using it’s parts.

They both fit at the top of the box and will easily replace the UNUN that didn’t quite cut the mustard. If I want, I can even use the URAT make the circuit remote tuneable – so  this project has an evolution that tracks my learning.

And I can tell you that I have really stepped up a couple notches by doing the URAT and now this. Its been the most fun I’ve had in ham radio, (and I did worry if there would be life after DXCC).

Well, there is!
