My Itty Bitty Set up and the future

Post by Oz » Saturday, 22 September 2007, 3:26 AM

I usually build a lot of my own stuff but i am thinking of buying a Skywalker 2x4 and then Building my own 16 Pill PSF Tech box. Currently i run an Itty Bitty little set up a Galaxy DX88HL Modded and an older Ma Co 3 Tube Mini-Brute with one 6KV6A driving 2 8950's but thinking of changing over to a 6 volt tube setup and running the much cheaper EL509/519's anyone looking for some 8950's i have 5 that will be up for sale soon as i get back from Afghanistan.

why into 2 10k's? I would just run them into 1 antenna, unless you are doing a bounceback system. In which, 1 of your antennas is just grounded, but not hooked up to radio....

It's not a bounce back, it's a 2 hot set up. Both of the antennas are fed, the back on then the front one. signal goes out the front of the vehicle.
