If anyone is using Drake equipment---
Do you happen to remember your experiences in tuning L34 in the IFalignment?
It never really peaked. It got louder near the top of the can but Inever
noticed the other down side so I can't be sure of a peak. I have some information of the Elecraft archives and will use a DVM or Spectrogramto try
and see the down side at the top of the can. (After I finish assemblyof the
K2!) However I'm curious how you peaked L34 and if you found bothshoulders of

ended up positioning the core about one turn from the top (as the
says), and it works fine.
I am highly delighted with the rig. I have the KAT2 auto-atu, KSB2
module, KNB2 noise limiter, top band module, Battery module and, more
recently, the KIO2 I/O module. My KAF2 AF filter/realtime clock is
order and expected any day. It loads up a 33 foot end fed wire on all
from top band to 10 metres giving a very respectable SWR. A *very*
After eliminating all the obvious, padded theGary at
trimmers with about 10 pF caps and that brought the BPF into range.
elecraft is sure nice to work with on these sort of issues!a
I finished the SSB and 160M boards without a problem. The SSB board was
challenge on the old eyes but worked first time. Finishing the KATUtonight, if
it all works. ;-) So far I'm very impressed with this little rig. Ihope to
order the KAF2 and KNB2 soon to keep up the building momentum. What isyour
impression of the noise blanker? Is it a worthwhile addition?
