Kit or No Kit?
I'm posting this because I am amused. Two exhibits below, one is WSPR using TX 5W, TS-2000, Vertical antenna, proper earthing system. The other is 817/500mW/bit of wire. Both are about 6 hours worth of snapshot (?)
You know the answer, of course:
Exhibit A is 17m, 5W, Vertical antenna, TS-2000, proper earth,...
Exhibit B is 10m, 500mW, two bits of wire, one a bit longer and 817
So, why do we need kit?
