It has been awhile since I have posted something to the list.....so please
indulge me here. I have this TA-33 up at 60 feet....
OK, all you Force-12 people...you don't need to email me about how great
your antenna is....I already know all of that. HHHHAAARRRRR!
The TA-33 is acting funning and I want to make sure I have diagnosed this
thing right. On Ten meters it is OK. SWR is fine and it shows a curve
that is "normal" Same thing on Fifteen meters. When I get to 20 meters,
well the SWR is 2.7 to one all across the band. I can use a tuner to match
it down, but.....
I am thinking that a trap is gone in the Driven Element. But, Mosley says
it could be any trap in either the reflector or the director that could
cause it to act funning. Before I run off and buy a lot of parts, what do
you "august" experts think?
To me, the problem has to be the Drive Element..... I just don't see the
traps in the reflector or director having that much affect on the beam....
You opinions or Experience????
