Club/Team: Mad River RC


Equipment : Kenwood TS-850S , Drake L4B 
Antennas : Center-Fed Zepp @ 40 ft, 20 meter dipole@ 40 ft

Missed about 10 mins during 3rd hour when the antenna tuner made a BiG arc when
I switched to 20 meters and forgot to switch to the 20 dipole. The SWR went sky
high. Opened the tuner and found it blew the wire that went to a ground
connection. (looks like it was going to the SWR metering circuit.) Resodered
this and was back in business. The going was more tough on 20 than on CW.
I need a beteer antenna on that band to be really competitive in the future.
