You need to either A Accept the mismatch and realize that your antenna is extremely efficient, and that 2. This was suggested over on eham actually to use a metal braid — but a strip provides more surface area. View of another junction box just before the feedline enters the house. Anonymous February 20, at 2: MFJ Antenna Switches are basic two position coax switches to select one of two antennas to one radio.
Switch to Threaded Mode. I planned to do a temporary deployment until I had the time to make the permanent install. Measurements should be made at the antenna using a short 5 or 6 ft. The CP6 covers six popular HF bands, including the 6m band. This antenna is great for LF DX work. Plus I was out of time in terms of weather as that day turned out to be the last nice 40 deg F day.
I never specified, but my antenna is only a few inches off the ground. Have you got a 47 Ohm resistor to make a dummy load to check the analyser? The combination of the device and its associated software can do so many things it will open a whole new chapter in my antenna experimenting. Measurements should be made at the antenna using a short 5 or 6 ft. Mark the position of the trap sleeve before you start so returning to the initial point will be simple if needed.
You will need 8m of More information. Just in case you didn't know, a 59 does mean it is working well qualitatively Calculate the difference in db and you will see the concept. Also avoid metallic objects near the ends of the radials. I am assuming that it will not change significantly with more radials, but would if I had no radials and added some after tunning. It only acts as high impedance to the undesirable additional currents on the outside braid of your coax.
