I’m going through my DXCC “withdrawal” – lets call it a DXCC 12 Step Program. First, I got rid of the N6BT DXU-32 (best antenna along with the DXE DV-40-P and Wellbrook ALA1530LNP’s) and AB577 Military Tower. Now I am getting rid of my 1500 watt amplifier and manual tuner and am going to go with the Elecraft K-Line from now on. I will also rely on resonant antennas with the Inverted L (that has my home brewed base matching circuit), the DXE DV-40-P 40M phased array, and soon – a SteppIR UrbanBeam for 40 – 6M. I have the KPA-500 and KAT-500, but the tuner is mostly a “line flattener” . . .
This is all a bigger commitment than I expected it would be – but its time to move on.
