Donít throw it at the wall just yet ! I went thru the same drill last night and had a thought ! !

K0BG Allen , has been tutoring me too and remember that most antennas are made longer

to see the 50 ohm match. By change it with the transformer, look for the match up the band.

It may be some where else for I have not play with this little gem very long. You really need the

MFJ 259 B to watch the reactance go very close to zero before using the 907 box. Then every thing

jump some where else. At this point you re-tune the stinger to the part of the band you wish to operate.

I have a Bugcather on 40 mtrs that shows 20 ohms. Letter ( F ) brought it to 1.2 VSWR / 52 ohms and

the reactance of < 2 >. I have to credit Allan for getting me on track with the mobile technology. I should of scored it 4.5 for the mushy switch, but that's MFJ for you !

Best of Luck, es 73's
