Hi Matey from freezing cold Australia. I am English G6SWV (been here ten years) and have just gained this Oz (ish) call sign VK2GBR today after a break of 30 years with amateur radio. I was looking for a suitable QRP radio, decided upon a FT817DN and happened upon your site as looking for an ATU review. I was astonished to read about your illness, my heart goes out to you and your mrs. My brother is in a similar situation back in the UK. He is on a drug trail that is designed to arrest the development of his cancer, early days but no side effects so far. I will say a few prayers for you tonight, crazy stuff, not religious myself but there really is more to life than just pure logic. I shall hold you in my thoughts mate.

Built a lash up version of your wonder loop today, took a while to get it matched, needed a slightly longer coupling loop but soon had it tuning up on 40m to 20m at less than 1.5 : 1. Decided to have a go holding the thing next to my arm chair in the downstairs lounge. Nearly fell off my chair when an OK1 station gave me a 559. 10W to an indoor loop on 30m, amazing! Going to do the job properly now and take it on hols in August. Many thanks for the design. Bye the way I used 2.5sqmm insulated solid copper wire for the main loop and seems to work fine.
73s and hope you get your health problem sorted out soon.

Interesting site Julian. Reading your comments on switch mode pwr supplies in connection with the FT-817 article. Have you considered using an old ATX supply from a scrap PC? They are easily adapted, light weight, usually free from hash and noise, and can supply 10 amps at 12 volts. I use two, one for my ft-857 (100 watts) and one for my FT1500m FM rig. I got both of them free and they have worked without incident for over a year now, one is on 24/7 doing WSPR.

Thank you very much for the Morse Machine software. I'm learning to annoy my Dad (an army signaller) in code now too. :D

When I saw mention of your loop antenna design among the May 21011 SKCC WES results, I searched the web for more info and discovered your well done website full of great material. Thank you.

Nice website. I will certainly spend more time here. Especially enjoy your political comments. It is obvious we "yanks" have become far more EU-like and are now enjoying many of the same problems you are "enjoying"! I, too, am having problems "catching up" to retirement.
BTW, nice video on installing APRSISCE/32, and thanks for your comments in the group.

Fantastic site with tons of useful information and interesting readings, one of the best I've ever seen! Also great thanks for MorseMachine who helped me regain my long lost CW skills and achieve the 40+ WpM level! Greetings from Africa, hope to hear you sometimes on the air too. 73, Peter (also J5UAP and HA3AUI )

Great site - good to see that even with restrictions ham can be fun.

Thanks for a fantastic site mate. I never will be a HAM, but I used to use some amazing kit, unlicensed, when I was in a green suit. I used to love working a 321. (It's amazing what you can do on "HMQ's work)!
Just on CB and PMR now, but still interested in the whole 'wireless' comms thing. In fact, just ordered the kit to set up an inverted V dipole for my Midland 42.
Very interesting & informative what I've read so far, and I've only just started.
Thanks again for putting the site up mate.
