Emulating the Hi-Z Receive Solution with an NCC-1

The Hi-Z “Emulation System at KY6R I have never owned a Hi-Z receive antenna system but have heard nothing but great things about them. I do have two Hi-Z 75 to 50 ohm transformer boxes, so I guess I have at least thrown them a few bucks. I will be testing the NCC-1 before I test the K9AY Loops that I wrote about in…

Next (Receive) Antenna Experiment – Coming Right Up!

I am going to set up the NCC-1 with two short whip antennas (I have so much extra aluminum its crazy – I wish I could find someone to take it away). Anyway, I will get another BNC A-B box and a couple 50′ lengths of flooded RG6 and so an A-B test between the NCC-2 and the KY6R Big Mag Loops and two…

DX Engineering NCC-1 vs. NCC-2 Test

I’ll try two shortened verticals against the NCC-2 with the two KY6R Big Mag Loops I have a friend who needs a phased receive array of some sort.  He has very little space – so even two Wellbrook ALA1530LNP loops might be too big for his space. His TX antenna is a SteppIR Vertical. His lot is 35 by 100′, so separation is really…

DX Engineering NCC-1 Redux

The first in the DX Engineering Receive Antenna Phasing Unit Line- the NCC-1 I’m not sure – but I think W8JI designed the MFJ-1026 phasing unit, and then bettered it with the DXE NCC-1 and finally the NCC-2. I had an NCC-1 and NCC-2, even though they were always on the expensive side. After making 9BDXCC – especially DXCC on 160M, I sold them….
