KA1GJU Super Station #1 RX sensitivity is back!

#1

Unread post by KA1GJU »

I noticed a slow degradation in #1's RXR's... needed more and more visual gain and pre-amp.
Found that one of the dozen Sciurus carolinensis (Grey Squirrel) had chewed on the insulation of the antenna wire, exposing the wire to the weather. The flat top of the post that holds the 9:1 Unun makes a great perch for them as they are shucking Hickory nuts.

I simply cut out the 5' section and re-attached. All is well!
