Duct Dynasty

It's done.  And the focal point of this final phase of the duct is the window.  This powerful connection links the 250KW transmitter to the 4x4 curtain antenna.

The RF signal goes from the transmitter through this long RF output that includes a large filter and balun. 

This is like a take off point.  We could say the HF signal has left the building and is at lift off to the antenna.  From there it is up to the far reaches of the ionosphere 300 kilometers or about 186 miles up to where it starts it's bounce to ... you.`    

And... on the other side of the RF output the work on the transmitter is in process.  Testing and transmitter work are underway looking forward to it's inaugural transmission.  Light her up!
