Of all the sources of unique help and info about 160 meters, IMO this
reflector is the best one.
I suppose you've found the searchable archives, which I've found invaluable
There are other sources, notably ON4UN's Low Band DXing, published by the
ARRL. Everyone with an interest in 160m should own a copy.
There are a number of other informative web sites out there, too. I have
some of them listed and linked to from www.w0btu.com (not all on one page,
sorry). And there's a page there about Beverage antennas there that you
might find useful.
Maybe you would let me pick your brain sometime about my swamped-grid
dual-833C legal limit amp. It works fine on 160 and 80, but it needs
neutralizing if it's going to be stable on 40 (and work at all on 20). I
have a plan to neutralize it using a tertiary winding on the input
transformer, but I foresee a lot of trial and error. But I don't have time
to work on that right now.
I wasn't even sure if two of those triodes in parallel would even work, so
I didn't spend a lot of time making it look pretty.
Stick around, Lou. Believe it or not, this is usually a friendly forum!
