G'day all, today I fired up my 857D and responded to a call on 10m. My first for quite a while. The other party returned saying I sounded shocking, like I was overdriving, very hard to understand. My SWR was spot on through my Little Tarheel and my settings on the radio hadn't changed. My bonding I have felt was good enough since I've not had poor reports previously. Does it sound like I should revisit my bonding and see if there is an issue somewhere?

Cheers
Dale

Sounds like a common mode issues to me. I'd bet the control lead choke was wound like Tarheel told you to. And you need a choke on the feed line too. Are they in place?

Hi Alan, yes, both the chokes are in place and it's not the ones Tarheel provided, I used the ones you recommended on your web site, and they're wound up and taped shut.
