SST 20 meter problems
- Not sure if this is the right group to pose the question, but I'm
having some problems with my newly constructed SST-20. Good RF output
-- about 2+ watts, receive can be peaked, good match into antenna
(1.3:1 or so). Local ham about 6 miles away can copy me. Marker
generator shows that the VXO is tuning within desired range. However,
I can't hear him -- he has a Yaesu FT-817. What should I look for
next? Only mods I've made is to bypass key and audio out lines (had
symptoms of RF in the audio), and put an 18K resistor as suggested on
the VXO pot to linearize it. Haven't had a good way to check that though.
What do I start looking for next??
