I'm a head of you. I am using this at the feed point.

The PL-259 I screwed on an broke the tip was unreliable.
A new cable borrowed solved the inconsitancy.

I am SWR 1 and 50 ohm at 14.380 and can do most of the range below 2.
The rest the LDG 200pro takes care off.

Last night QSO party on 14.342.5 I had good QSO with W3FF northern CA 5 3 and 5-4
However he was beaming 500W from his 1931 Ford model A. Alas not using the 6V car system, using a battery from the back seat.

I can drive a round to day Sat with 17m and freq above mentioned to see if I can catch Colorado
