>I have a homebrew 8877 that has been working fine for 12 years on 160 and 40 thru 10, but I never had an 80M antenna. I finally got one up and the amp wont load on 80. It is stable, draws full current, but puts out less than the input, I've played around  adding and removing padders to the plate and load caps. There is no tuned input.Any ideas???Thanks, Dick NY1E

Does it load correctly into a dummy load?
