WSPR DX

Last night 14  decodes of WD2XSH/17  best -14
Seems like every night different  challenges Murphy is around all the time.
Antenna current dropped to zero every now and then
with some relation to the higher voltage.
Basicly 3 things could be wrong: Antenna, cable or Variometer .
The last thing would be the worst but this Hagenuk Variometer is very professional build
Thick Litze coils  4mm  and all coated with a thick layer  epoxy.
 Culprit was old army RG213  PL259 brown isolation type
This is a short cable to the outside tuner.
I was using it for 160m also.
So this 475 TX is a good weak spot tester.
And the TX with IRFP4227 can survive even short circuit in the antenna.

                                                       Hagenuk



Had my best TX result last night  140W DC input
More stable and reliable using the IRFP4227
 first time decoded by N1BUG  twice
the relative antenna current indicator for  the first time was on 100%
with the IRF540 it was 50-60 as long as the FET holds..
Now the weakest spot is loss in  the air coils starting to smell.
It needs toroids  transformers or Litze wire.
When tuned good the IRFP stays almost cool .
And although  the loading transformer was changed fro 9:1 to 4:1  the  SWR over the 50Ohz short feedline to the tuning box does not go below 1:2
 resulting in 400V tt  = 142V effective  over 150? OHm
Tuning on  max  current in the line to ground does not happen at the lowest SWR point.


    this  explanes a lot the good signal of WD2XSH/17

printscreen dump to Dropbox  does a perfect compress. Dropbox pop keeps on whining about upgrading after the free file storage has been used.
