> Thanks for that assessment, Steve. I've never seen the MFJ box, and wondered how it compared to the NCC-1. I use the NCC-1 mostly to phase a pair of spaced VE3DO loops, but also occasionally and to try to cancel noise. I did extensive measurements of the NCC-1, which I published as part of slides for a talk at Pacificon on the VE3DO loops. It is, indeed, a very nice unit, quite well-behaved and useful up to about 20M.
