Default MFJ antenna analyzer

They're a little expensive, but well worth the money. It's easy to set up a
factory made antenna with and a blessing when building homemade antennas.
The analyzer leaves nothing to guess about as it's all read out. I haven't
used it yet, but it also has a frequency counter input. That's just another
use that make the MFJ-269 indispensable. Rollie

Just make sure you keep a dummy load across the RF jack when not in use,
it protects the input, and makes a nice little reality check. Aside from
that, it's a great little tool.

It isn't precision lab gear but it will pay for itself by saving you from an
early roofing job.

An external rechargeable battery pack will keep you from wearing out the
screws or risk leakage while in storage. These things eat batteries. I use
a gel cell in a fanny pack to the external port. That way I never have to
take it out of the case.

Put some grease on the case screws and use only 2 on each side.
After 10 years use the other 2.

I have successfully used my 259B to build small transmitting loops for 80
and 160m as well as setting up mobile whips and many other antennas.
