my stalkers seem a bit confused at this post
of course they are confused about a lot of things but I digress
I am aware thatfolks have said everything needs a chassis goround OTOH many of the same folks also said everyone needs to learn Mors e Code in order to be a sucfessfull ham and everyone must suffer forthier licenses etc

in case i point out they did get it right for a change do try grounding your hf rigs esp if you are having any kind of noice problems

chassis grounding is something I have neglected as a Hamm after it doesn't seem to help much at VHF plus ndeed most of my VHF gear can't be grounded very well

HF seems to be another story I found this out when I decided to ground my gear at the insistance of the intructions for the AL-811 amp.

I was shocked at the result. and then tried it on my older FT 847 which I had all but given up for dead at HF and the resulting improvement in prefrom was shocking

accordingly I have to suggest that no matter what your experences have been at VHFplus with gound try it on mf and hf spectrum

new Blog

this point of this blog will be to desemnate tips and tricks or other technical stuff I hope folks will find usefull
