Made a quick video of some impressive results using the WNB and NR on 160M, radio is a Flex 6600 and antenna is a 250ft Beverage.

Sounds great. My 6600 has not been able to function like that at all. I have to try on SSB and duplicate your settings. I have some investigating to do.

Thanks for the video. Is there anything you have found that gets it to work so well.

Welcome to my world :-)

I find the WNB works great for power line noise that comes and goes. On 40 meters I have seen almost 30 dB drop in noise floor at times. Makes the difference in closed band vs working people.

I have a few videos on YouTube.

If the Flex didn't have the WNB, the low bands would almost be impossible to work in my area.  I have tons of power line noise and the WNB does a great job.

I guess mine doesn’t work because I have no power line noise. Just wall warts☹️
