Hello operators
I planned to release my SOTABEAMS WSPRLite video today, but I had to put that aside to help a few users who were having problems getting started with the MINI60 antenna analyzer. I thought the best way to help them would be to create a tutorial in English, since the user manual leaves much room for improvement.
in this video we go through:
- Putting the MINI60 into Wireless link mode.
- Pairing the Bluetooth antenna analyzer with your smartphone or tablet,
- Adjusting the resonant frequency of a magloop while scanning SWR.

I hope you all find this video useful.

A couple of years after I'd gotten my license, I was in high school and had a decent shack in my bedroom with a little tower with a 2-meter antenna, and a trapped vertical in the yard for HF. I had my first HF rig, a Kenwood TS 120s, and one of the first Heathkit kits I did, a micromatic keyer.

One morning, I was slowly waking up for school.

It was raining outside, a typical Texas shower.

FLASH-BOOM!!

Yep, the house was hit by lightning. My shack was plugged up and was an immediate casualty. All gone in a literal and temporal flash.

For a poor high school student, this was devastating. I lost one of the few escapes I had. HF let me reach beyond.

I finally rebuilt much of it before going to college, with an older TS 520s and other odds and ends, but I always unhooked everything each night, and it took years before I could sleep during a thunderstorm.

Hello operators.
Today we return to the dipole versus the magnetic loop. Don't take it too seriously though, as it's all in good fun. This time I think I've created a More Level Playing Field for our tests. Using my dual WSPRLite test kit, last evenings results might surprise you.
It's all about understanding the various tools we have in our antenna tool boxes.
Enjoy the read.

Anyone have experience putting BNC ends on a piece of coax for a GPS receiver? Or testing the line. I am relying on someones word that it is the connector that is broken. I have a tester for f-connectors, maybe just an adapter is needed.

I was thinking AGWPE is deaf. It isn't! RTL-dongels are to blame! Since my Yaesu FT-817ND is up && running, data is rushing in! Don't know who WIDEx is yet but my grin is wide-15 at the moment :D
