Re: Blown by nearby transceiver #bitx40help
Hey Jerry, I’ve had strange things like his happen to me with other equipment when transmitting even with a little Power like the bitx40. I’ve zapped the inductors on a SpyVerter and SV1AFN upconverter, fried them completely, the spyverter has board damage too but nothing else, no other components. Heck, I’ve fried the SV1AFN a few times with my 100w radio and finally beyond repair because it killed the mixer and too many things I didn’t have parts for. My SDR Antenna is near my long wire TX antenna I use for my Yaesu and the bitx40 when I had it.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It happened mostly when I was tuning up, actually I think only when tuning up. And especially on 160. I’ve watched an inductor burn up right before my eyes when the tuner was chattering. Must of been throwing high voltages everywhere. RF sure is amazing lol. I’m still learning.
