Don't have much to try it with, Realistic htx-100 and a shoulder height dipole LOL. At least I am not on a marine battery anymore, my brother got the idea that we could convert some surplus ATX power supplies over to bench supplies. They work OK after some solder and jumpering.
One notable thing, TV picture from the OKC station about 100 miles away, usually a little fuzzy and ghosty, is cable quality tonight.
