Cookies are just to help in the registration process..... Once you get ur Keycodes you'll be fine. Just write them down in several places so you can go back and find them... So in case the website fails again your not lost.... Keycodes are bound to your callsign not the computer. I'm running UI-View on 6 puters and Winpack on at least as many. Got my Keycodes/registration back in 2004.
The Nuvi 350 uses Garmin FMI protocol, you need NMEA for a regular TNC. The argent t2 or t3 will do the translation for you. Cool thing with the Argent tnc,FMI cable and the Nuvi 350 is message send and RX capability.
Well here's my thought..... My experience is: 3db > 100W vs 200W can make the difference between "I hear someone calling but just can't pull U out of the noise, sorry OM" and " Your 5-9, good copy, thanks for the call" I have done this more than once.
1) My antennas all are open wire fed using a link coupled tuner. 2) When operating mobile I run a screwdriver ant. So for me it's a no brainer "HX"
Put it up and play it. If you can get the ends up a little higher do so. The flatter you can get it the better. 135' is a good length. Feedline lengths of mutiples of 50' have worked well for me. (have used 50,100,150) Balanced tuner works best (johnson matchbox) also have used icom ah-4 with good results. I have made many DX contacts with this antenna.
Have fun with it. Buy in was cheap enough. Finding drivers for some of the old boxs can somtimes be a challenge but hey no pain no gain. I still have an old p100 running 96 megs of ram, win 95. Comes in real handy when I need to program old moto's. Enjoy the hobby
My Experience with G5's and variants is they are best if deployed as flat tops. (180^) And up High. So, one they recommend > 170^ and your at 160^ thats gonna change the tuning characteristics. Your just a tad over the minimum height. Proximity to the ground workin against you as well. G5jr is a mediocre ant on 40 and maybe OK on 20 at best. If it's working on 20m the way you have it deployed consider yourself blessed. Also if you can't reel the VSWR in with a manual tuner consider a problem with the G5 itself. Bad feedline, shorted PL-259 ect.
