I went for another solution: I bought the DXE switch box, made my own Hi Z
amp:s in line with Leee:s (K7TJR) Hi Z amp:s, slightly modified in order to
cope with the high field strength from my TX antenna and in conjunction with
my own 5.5 m whips it turned out to perform ok. This RX 4 square is phased
with some of my short beverages by using the DXE-NCC-1 (vastly superior to
the MFJ Phasing box). This phasing gives me a chance to reduce the level of
some strong EU signals and even very local QRM like switching supplies.
