Thanks Phil. Yes I was afraid of that. The 450D is designed that way and no way to un attenuate that part of the band. Oh well. Sent from Mike's iPad WA1MADmaddmd818
Indeed. There are other am broadcast bands on upper frequencies. On those you can turn off the attenuator but not on the lowest band, that is right. Nicolaszombi_net
I make sure my antenna tuner is in bypass and get nice sensitivity using my G5RV. Not much of a test but WSM in Nashville. TN is 20 over S9 in Brandon, MS atad5olawrence
