Re: Transmitter Mods

I wanted to follow-up to the group with my experience with this mod.  It's fantastic, thank you Howard!  I lack any proper test gear outside of a cheap multimeter so signal reports are my test gauge and they have improved dramatically (FT8) on 20M and below.

The teepee was a bit of an adventure with my old eyes and shakes, but some +3.0 glasses and a splash of vodka helped things along.
