Got TGXL today


I have it installed and wired up. Seems to be working well.

I was hoping it would be able to tune a 40m vertical on 20m but it can't. Oh well that would be a sucky ant anyway. I was hoping it would tune for backup purposes if my 80m loop goes down.

I am running SmartSDR Mac and I notice that the tune button in SmartSDR does not engage the tune feature of the TGXL. I assume that is intended.

Anyway, it is pretty much a plug and play device. Will report more as I learn more.

    I've found that the tuner will easily tune a MUCH BROADER range manually than it will automatically. Which gives me hope they can fix some stuff via software.

    Interesting... I'll have to give that a try...

    Ya... I was able to tune my 40m vert on 20m manually. Again not sure that will be a great antenna but the fact that the tuner can do it lends hope that software can be improved to do so.

    The tuner needs some work on the auto tune but I have been able to manually tune everything so far. Auto tune will probably get better with future firmware updates.
