Thank you very much!
However, I am worried that the inductors I have are not the exact same ones you used. I got them from another HAM that ordered them thru the same supplier that you used, but EBAY suppliers have been know to substitute.
Mine are orange/yellow and are marked "A" and "T" and R68K 1145. However, in your post#60946 you said that they were Marked "S+M". I assume the 68k means 680nh? Perhaps the A+T vs S+M is a country/manufacturing plant?
I suspect that the apparent power loss on 80/40 is not true. I measured harmonics/spurs 4x. For the Primary:
Band 1st 2nd 3rd 4th (after l5/l7 replaced)
80 -65 -64 -57 -65
40 -67 -67 -65 -70
80M looks like man outlier. And i really don't knew what i am doing with the SDRPLAY spectrum scope software, so mistakes could creep in.
40M does look lower after inductors. I am going to re-measure later today.
