The resister is R18. Just for the heck of it I temporarily installed it. I did notice what seemed like a bit more dynamic range and definitely more bass. However my range was severely cut down. Remember I am using the Valor antenna and my setup is kinda weird. I am not using any of the SSTRAN’s inductors. Rather I have a small, I think more efficient and/or better value inductor soldered on the antenna plug between the ground and antenna. I do get some more range by having the antenna lead connected to ground, and the ground lead connected to the antenna. I don’t know the value of the inductor off hand, but it works well no matter which way I have the antenna and ground hooked up. I think with an even more efficient, or correct value inductor, I could get more range and possibly be able to run with R18 installed. A variable inductor is what I need to really fine tune this thing.
