> Hello all I wonder if anyone can help with a little info.
> I have a TH7DX at 75 feet with a 402-CD mounted about 12ft above. Both booms
> are in the same plane.
> 1. The 15m swr curve seems to mimic the plot for normal settings shown in the
> manual but I have assembled it to the DX setting ( in fact the only setting
> given in the manual) can someone confirm the DX dimensions RDE-2 =838mm
> FDE-2 = 1067mm
> 2. What power is the BN-86 rated at. Or put another way has anyone cooked one.
> 3. I am at present using a sleve balun in preference to the BN-86. This has
> worked fine on my old 3ele tribander but was wondering if this could upset
> the TH7.
> I am not that hung up about the SWR on 15m as it is under 2:1 at the bottom
> of the band however if there is a way to shift the curve a little lower it
> would be nice.
> Any other info on your experience with the above setup would be welcome.
