I need to take the "Big Dog" #ft891 out more often. It handles the bands so smoothly into an #EFHW using the #tenntenna 49:1 transformer and easy sending #morsecode using the American Morse Equipment #ultraportapaddle #hamradio #amateurradio #pota #parksontheair

Yesterday I tried out a 20M-band #EFHW antenna made out of a cheap made-in-China 49:1 balun and some speaker wire, and I'm pretty satisfied with the result. Most of those were made on FT8, but two SSB contacts were also made. Everything done with my 5W FT-818.
Couldn't dial into WinLink using Pat, but that's next on the roadmap :alex_partying:
#hamradio
Also my NanoVNA died on me so I was trying to tune the antenna blindly, but miraculously it resurrected after a few hours.
