One warning about the MT-2000/MT-3000 ... be careful with it on 10 meters.
On 10, the coil is so short and the circulating current so high due to the
close proximity of the case (shorted turn effect), that the coil supports will
melt (happened to me).
In any case, if anyone knows of a clean MT-2000 or MT-3000 for $100, I'd like
to find one again.
