I am in a space limited environment and already have a double bazooka tuned
for 80 meters that works fine on 80 meters. I also have
a MFJ-949B Tuner and a manual antenna switch. Rig is an IC-775.
I have two antennas already going to the MFJ the double bazooka and a
TitanDX Vertical. Therefore both PL-259 connectors are being
I do have a random wire input to the tuner and a balanced wire input that
are open at this point.
Does anyone know of a way I can use the Double Bazooka tuned for 80 meters
(or something) at least for stateside work on 160.
Do you have room for a ground system? If so, run the bazooka-dipole
feedline directly to ground,
put a relay there for bandswitching, and feed the coax against ground.
One word of caution...the balun inside the 949B won't tolerate a high vswr
power. If you try something using the balanced feed, it might tolerate the
but don't do it with an amp.
