I am experiencing some trouble adjusting the 17-BTVS add-on for the Hustler 5-BTV to make it resonant between 18.068MHz and 18.168MHz.
The 17-BTVS is mounted just lower than the 10m trap as shown in the image on RadioWorld’s website (to the left).
I have tried all different lengths of the telescopic section but cannot get anywhere near the band. The following captures from the antenna analyser show that it (when the top section is at it’s lowest) is resonant around 16.7MHz.
I will keep tinkering but I am a little lost for ideas right now.
