I saw your post so I popped down there and worked him too Very Happy
With my RF amp off, on the radio, he was 5x9 and with it on he was 9+20.
My report with him was 5x9.
Sounds like its working then....Winston sent me that photo...Its a really simple method of joining coax to open line feeder...basically a bit of coax with a PL259 on one end and two single block connectors on the other end.
Here is the pic:



So if you want to make one up and try it on the ATU without the 4:1 balun inline it should'nt take long.

Thats the one I was telling you about...The one with the spiral loading coils on each end.
I was thinking about adding coils like that at each end of my dipole so i can get onto top band.
