The TX runs 5 watts, figure 3 db loss on the coax, and the omni is essentially 0 gain ( a dipole wrapped around), so the ERP would be around 2.5 watts.

Kudos on your choice of the M2 antenna, IMHO, they are the best and will last a lifetime... And for those who might not be aware, there is Frank's, W2UHI beacon on 432.299, still going strong, runs 10 watts HP, from Grand Haven.Al....KV8X-------Original Message----- --From: K8TBDate: 3/13/2010 7:50:01 PMSubject: [WestMichiganHams] Six Meter Beacon On the Air....
The former K8EB six meter beacon is back on the air, with a few
It's now located just north of Holland, still on 50.065 MHz.
The call sign changes a bit, from K8EB to K8TB
