I should add that the bug-catcher with impedance matching coil at the
base, makes for a decent AM signal, since the bug-catcher handles power
fairly well. I've made many an AM contact with the Kenwood TS-140/680,
Worthmore Amp, low-pass filter and bug-catcher antenna.
yeah, bugcatcher - yeah, that's it.
