Hello Clemens and Alan (Melia),
Sorry for very late reply, I have not had access to my GMAIL account
for a while and it's the only one Blacksheep do not bounce my mails
from. A great reply and I see your addition as well, I understand now
why the traces behave as they do off resonance, appreciated!! Thanks
to all the excellent and patient help from the LF forums I seem to
have finally achieved a reliable and pretty good TX set up for 136kHz,
and more than that I believe I have a much better understanding of how
everything works and ties in together, which is immensely satisfying
considering every element is home built and far more pleasing to use
than some black box for HF :) 73 everyone!
