I just bought a few vactrol's from B G Micro for use in my K9AY antenna in
place of the fixed termination resistors. Looking at some older posts, it
appears that the way to use them is with a 1k pot connected to the 12v

vactrols, what about controlling current, etc.?
Take a look at There are a several how-to articles.
