Thank you Zack / W1VT. Your quick reply is much appreciated. Taking a quick lunch break today, I also saw spectran @ http://www.weaksignals.com/ is something I will also try out. It's always fun breathing new life into old equipment. 73 and much appreciated.

TS-140 and post processing audio with software oldham43 on 24/2/16
Hello everyone!

I have an old Kenwood TS-140. It's truly is an amazing rig but doesn't have all the bells and whistles like all the new filtering and built in DSP that the new rigs have.

What I would like to know is if anyone has used computer software (which ones) to route the audio from the ring into the computer for post processing clean up. Does something like this exist?

I am just trying to clean up received signals a little more across various bands and modes.

Thanks in advance and 73.

Hy-gain mod 18 AVT/WB-A vertical problem oldham43 on 9/9/13
I have a old hygain 18 AVT/WB-A vertical 10-80 that has served me well for MANY years. However I suspect that there may be a problem with the COAX feed point at the bottom of the mounting bracket.
Does anyone know the "internals" of this ant at the feed point ?
Is there a internal shunt coil or DC ground capacitor contained within the bottom tube of this antenna.
If so what arrangement are they connected, shunt? series? parallel?
Also what are the values of these devices and what should the resistance at the feed point read on a VOM?
I have tried HY-Gain, MFJ, and other sources, ie, Bing, Google with no clear results. I would love a note and a hand drawn schematic of the type of connection inside of the ant or if it is just a flex jumper from the female coax conn to the inside of the tube at the bottom mounting bracket.
Thank you in advance if you can help me.
