Fellow Top Banders,

I have a matching problem with a Rohn 25G, 160m ? wave vertical and am 
hoping some of you can help me out....

...My friend (K5ZO) and I have tried every thing we can think of to get 
this antenna to resonate anywhere in the 1.8 to 2.0 MHz range.  ...

...Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Please feel 
free to post to the group as I feel this information would be helpful to 
others as well. <> 

Thanks & 73, <>

   On a chance you haven't thought of this, antenna analyzers are
susceptible to strong nearby AM stations especially when used on 160m
verticals in that frequency range.  I am sure this has caused many an OM to
put extra work into seeking resonance until he discovered this problem.
