I am an AMer, and here is my advice! Don't buy any monitor until you know you are wanting to stay in this part of the hobby. Zillions of hams have operated in the past and present without using a mon

Author: Lee <>

This scheme makes no sense to me. It is known a 3-500Z tube has it's getter on the plate. So if you place 45 volts on the plate and draw 400 ma, you have a plate dissipation of 18 watts. 18 watts is

Mike, I have always heard of long time "idle" 3-500Z tubes needing to be gettered because the high voltage can flash over and destroy the grid. I have never heard they have a problem emitting electro

Anyone on here using or used a MFJ-998RT remote antenna tuner? I plan to put up a vertical Loop with the bottom leg along the ground and am wanting a high power remote tuner to tune the thing. The on

I'd buy the Matchlett from K5SVC in Ms. He is a super guy and super honest. He will not sell junk and when junk is out there, he will not sell any of it. You can trust Frank. He stands behind what he

John, OK I understand what you are saying. But, how does a graphite 3-500Z tube get gettered after sitting around? You say heating the anode to glow does not getter the tube. I realize the graphite t

I think there is also something else factoring into all this. That is, the state of the hobby. I got licensed in 1953 and the culture of ham radio has changed a lot since then. New ham interests are

I think you guys should back off talking about Alpha.  Many times words sound stronger on a reflector then intended.  Also the owner/part owner most likely has invested his life savings and time into

I'm 79.  Anyone got any suggestions as to how long an amplifier should last for me? Lee, w0vt I expect my SB-220 will be operating for my entire ham radio lifetime. And I'm not retired, so that will

I'm not a beginner.  Been a ham for 64 years.  However I have never built a legal limit Solid State Amp.  I have thrown my name in the hat with my friend Mike and both w5mp and w0vt are going to buil
