And I just updated the Mini Wire Antenna manual to Draft 2 version.

Thanks,

5W is fine for FT8.

Adam,

how many watts ats is the smaller toroid good for? I would assume 5w.

thanks

Folks,

See this short video:

It is now more capable for mobile operations. I can take email order now for 16 USD each, plus 5 USD shipping.

Thanks,

Jeez, alright fella. It didn't work for you. Chill out.

Simon,

As others have indicated, the Zero will work best when responding to others, and may not complete the decode quickly enough when you're calling CQ.  However, can anyone confirm that the Zero is fast enough even when just responding to someone else's CQ or tail ending - that is, before the next transmission cycle begins?

I will try it when the d4d arrives and post my findings. I have a spare 3b+ as well in case the zero does not work out :)

I think trent needs a chill pill, take it easy there fella.

Hi Adam,
Thanks I have received the Mini Antenna Kit. Please send more instructions how to build like in second photo for 1:1 BALUN for a Dipole for the 40m band. How many windings for each wire. What is the exact meaning  A - L, A' and B - G, B' and C - R, C' - B from the manual.

Best regards,
Fred

Robert,

You can order now from the drop down menu of D4D order and choose 6-60m Coil Dipole Antenna.

Thanks,

My bad. The antenna looks like this.

Checked. Fast, both wideband decoding and narrow filter. Decoder sensitivity seems to be minimum.

It runs Ft8, but if there are a lot of stations - a lot to decode then it has no time to get an answer before the next cycle begins. Otherwise it runs ok.

Have you run WSJT-X on a Pi Zero before?  I understand it may not be sufficient for FT8.   I'm thinking of running it on a PI 3 A+ for portable work.
