Kostats touched on one important factor.  No two stations are the same.  And while the problems are all in the same sets of families, the specific cause and specific fix varies.  It can take a lot of

While one can argue as to the absolute need for a DIN vs. other connector type, I'm pretty sure that everyone who has used DIN will confirm - a DIN is a vedddddyyyyy great connector. I hate N connect

My experience with quite a number of the JKs is that they use machined aluminum clamp sets for the boom.  I personally don't like working with antennas on the ground so I build them on a trio of saw

It's not the rotor - it's a side effect of the PWM coming from the GH controller and transmitted by the rotor wires. 73/jeff/ac0c alpha-charlie-zero-charlie John KK9A I have motor noise
