I am still considering my options and as I looked at the Force 12 site I
observed that they get gain on 12 & 17m from several of their 10-15-20m
tri-banders (with a tuner).
Has anyone put an analyzer and/or a tuner on a KLM KT34XA and measured for
the possibility of tuner-assisted resonance on 12 or 17m? (I'd like to
know this before I sell them and choose something different or go ahead an
put them up ... and then wish I had chosen differently!)
Anyone actually used them on 12 or 17m? Results? Comparisons with beams
designed for 12 & 17?
BTW: In these sorts of applications, how much tends to be lost in the
tuner as heat? What tuner design (L, T, etc.) handles this sort of thing
12 & 17 are not priorities, but I do want something up there that will
offer a little gain and FB. My tower (s) are Rohn 25, so I have to be
careful about load, so a dual purpose (though not optimized) beam would be
a big plus!
Thanks & 73, DavidC AA1FA
