Will FC-102 work with a Beverage? Reply
by PY1OL on June 25, 2001 Mail this to a friend!
Hi, all,

I need to make a Beverage antenna for 80 meters (CW freq.). I thought of buying the matching unit (model 180A) and the resistive load (model 185A) from ICE (, but this would be difficult due to import regulations in my country. So I am looking for alternative ways.

The resistive load (or its equivalent) can be purchased locally, so this is OK. But, as I am in a hurry (want to try a rare DX on 80 m that's only possible on june to beginning of july), I don't want to build the matching box myself.

I have an old Yaesu FC-102 antenna tunner wich is still working quite nicely. It has a rear panel connection for wire antennae. My question is: can the FC-102 be used to replace the ICE matching unit (model 180A) for the beverage? Has anybody tried this yet?

Any information shared would be appreciated.
