I honestly can't tell a different after all this work. If you have comments, please let me know if I should invest more time into it.
This weekend contacts were from small town from west Sweden, Central France, Florida and one more place I forget.
The real thrill is contacting from my car, while driving, doing errands. I will take that over any stationary setup. One more thrilling reason to be in my Landcruiser.
I should be getting today the 40M and 10M hamstick.
I have problem getting the scan to stop. It scan right by conversation. My RF gain is back on 100%. My squelch is at the noise level. So most of the scan is quite. It breaks on S3 which is what I want. However the scan does not seems to stop even on S9 signal. Need to call Kenwood.
