Pneumatic Antenna Launcher (PAL-mkII)

 After several years of service, my old 'Spud Gun' antenna launcher has seen better days.  It has been suffering from a leak in the fitting at the valve and has so far eluded a permanent repair.  I haven't given up on it, but decided to explore some new ideas, and possibly simplify an already simple system.

The new launcher appears to be much easier to use and operate then the old PALmkI and it is simpler to build. Check it out on my "Projects" page.

BALUN Tests

I recently purchased an Elecraft BL-2 BALUN kit. I built it and decided to test it to see how it performed. I "borrowed" an analyzer and made a VSWR sweep from 100KHz to 54MHz and was very happy with the results.

After seeing the results for this new BALUN, I desided to test my other BALUN under the same conditions. To see more information on this, click here.
