Flex 6700 works very well on 50 MHz, love that ultra-low phase noise!

Here's a YouTube video of FK8CP pounding into DM59pa last night almost 4 hours after my sunset. Ultra-low Flex phase noise allows me to take full advantage of my quiet location.

    WOW!  Your noise floor is about 15-20 dB lower than mine on 6 meters!  I need to get busy implementing Howard's recommendations!  Of course, my antenna is a squalo on top of my chimney in the center of my house!  The T-11 LP is in process...

    Get an InnovAntennas LFA Yagi for 50 MHz if you want to drop your noise floor on 50 MHz and take advantage of your Flex. Search LFA Yagi and CT1HZE on YouTube and see what I mean.

    The T-11 LPDA is a nice antenna, too.

    I worked him too last night, but on my 5000.  Had to switch back to that for the NB ability.  Cant wait for 1.5!
