Longwire Antenna WB8ZTP 3 weeks, 4 days ago
Has anyone ever used an LDG-897 or LDG-897 Plus Autotuner on a random or long wire antenna or even thinking how a wire antenna could be configured on the Yaesu FT-897 with this tuner. I’m thinking about getting one for this summers portable operations. Any info is greatly appreciated on the LDG tuner even if it isn’t on a wire antenna. 73, Mark WB8ZTP

Martin (KB0HAE),

Thanks for the description of your early random wire antenna. All ideas help! Like you and others have stated, it’s a good way to get a quick start on an antenna in a pinch. 73, Mark WB8ZTP

Just wondering if this topic on Longwire antennas should be moved to the: Antennas, feed lines, baluns and antenna tuners section of the ARRL Forums.

Walter (KQ4JT) I tried to send you an email but your email address came back. I see there's a Davis Weather Station in Le Roy, NY just wondering if it's yours. We love our Davis Vantage Pro2 wireless and haven't had any RF problems, but I only run 100 watts. If you want more details look me up, I'm good on with my email address. Here's the link to our Davis WeatherLink internet data feed:
