Just ordred one of these and the tunable counterpoise from ML&S for my '857
- going to use it QRP when I am wanting to travel light!

Hi Steve - Is there a terminal to connect a counterpoise? Main weapon of
choice for portable ops is an FT-857 and Par Electronics (now LnR
Precision) end fed half wave antennas for 17,20 and 40m - 17 and 20 going
up a 10m fishing pole and 40 as an inverted L to the top of a 7m pole. 6m
covered with a home made Moxon and 2/70 with a Sotabeams 3/6ele beam. Got
some ideas for an easy to carry QRP station, be interested in seeing your
solution! 73 Richard

@MW0SAW Sorry I meant to say 2m VHF long telescopic antenna.

@rjy8960 Hi Richard, make sure you make yourself some counterpoise wires
for the various hf bands you wish to operate on. It's also worth trying the
antenna with other Bnc whips. I regularly use my long telescope antenna
with the matcher unit, set to min inductance and capacitance. If I get some
time i'll make a short video of my mini 817 carry pack. Enjoy! 73s Steve

@rjy8960 Hi Richard, when tilted on the legs, the back of the radio is
lifted off the ground and rests on the matching unit. I still find the
radio very stable on a flat surface. Regarding my thoughts on the
antenna...if like me you love taking your 817 on all your travels, you will
not find anything that will get you on the air faster and in such a small
size. Search for G4ILO's great review of the L-Whip, it's the same design,
just a shorter whip. Hope this helps. 73s Steve

Hi Steve, What are your thoughts on the antenna having had it for a while?
My 817 also has the peg legs. Is there enough clearance at the bottom of
the matching unit to allow the use of the peg legs without the radio being
physically unstable? 73 Richard M0SNR

@hamprepper ML&S too. 73s Steve

Where did you find the "peg legs" ? I need to get those. Thanks & 73, Jim

Автор MW0SAW ( назад)
@barrygkx I understand it's made by/for ML&S in the UK. Hope this helps.
Cheers Steve.
