Hi all,I’m finally back.
As Tony Will is late with the 1W linear amplifier for the Spitfire, 2 monthes ago I bough the Ramsey LPA1 kit. To be honest I’ve been waiting a long time before start, I already told you I’m not so conforteble in soldering but now… it’s working!
It tooks about 3 hours to get assembled and now it’s properly connected to my Spitfire RF output and to the antenna.
The last one is my weakness. Currently it’s just a 30 metres long wire screwed into an alluminium TV mast.
I just walked around to check the range and it looks to be increased; now I can listen to my station about two blocks (it was less than one without the amp) far from the transmitter. Audio quality is very good.
I remind you it’s located at the 2nd floor grounded to a cold water pipe.
Next step: building a base loading coil antenna and try to extend the range.
