Around here Bill, KC2IFR (iirc) just put one on the air - AM, 75m.

One of the things he found was that the input is a 350 ohm resistor...
which makes matching to solid state trancievers a bit dodgy... He ended
up using a matchbox between his rig and the Johnson...

He says he tried changing it to just a 50 ohm resistor and it did not
"work"... seems like it should have, but I wasn't there.

His choke was shorted out - he put a different choke in the hole...

It sounds pretty good so far on AM... but he says he'd rather have
a different linear knowing what he knows now...
