Howdy, TowerTalkians --
I'm installing a 2L F12 80M beam. I'm not sure of the exact nomenclature
- it was a semi-custom order - but it uses the element coils close to the
I can't find a resonance anywhere (following the manual instructions). I
went directly to the feedpoint and skipped the balun, relays, etc. and I've
still got infinite SWR everywhere. Usually that's an indication of a feedline
problem but I've got my MFJ hooked directly to the feedpoint and still no
dip anywhere. Not even a little one.
The elements have continuity and it's a pretty simple element; just an
insulated center feed piece, a coil and the rest of the element, so I'm pretty
flummoxed why I can't see a dip. I've changed the coil length with still
nothing. What am I missing here?!?
ANY help appreciate.
PS - Tom, N6BT, has been sort of helpful and there aren't any nearby AM
stations to cause problems with the MFJ.
