What aerial are you using for HF?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
cushcraft r8
Expert:  Neil replied 1 year ago.

So this aerial is good for up to the 40metre band... What HF frequency are you using

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
40 and 20
Expert:  Neil replied 1 year ago.

I needed to first eliminate the aerial as the unit won't transmit if the aerial is incorrect...

So confirm the r8 is connected to the HF output ...

Expert:  Neil replied 1 year ago.

Does the unit light up at all on transmit?

What exactly happens when you try to transmit...

Also are you able to receive ok...
