Topband: DXE NCC-1 phasing box

I recently replace my MFJ RX antenna phasing units with a DX Engineering 
NCC-1 and find it well worth the money There is a vast improvement in 
the phasing controls instead of MFJ's tiny knobs. they give full 
rotation and a phase reversal switch on either antenna which can be 
employed instantly .  By using two Beverages that are either pointed in 
the same or opposite directions I can enhance the forward reception, 
null out IX fro a close by local station better, or improve the F/B in 
the desired direction.  I use BC stations in PR and down the Caribbean 
to demonstrate to myself that the the NCC-1 is a phasing properly.  
Nulls are deeper and I can move them around as desired.   The 
construction of the unit is excellent. Yes it would be nice to have a 
schematic but i can understand how this could be outsourced overseas 
quickly and to the determent of the designers  I like the fact that 
DX-Engineering is standing by their products  And that is good enough 
for me.

I remember and old indisputable adage...."That which works"  Who can argue with that?
