KI6J End Fed Matcher in Box

KI6J in plastic box

Matcher with Lid and 5000 Ohm 'antenna'

Got the Dremel and cut some holes in the Rat Shack box to mount the KI6J End Fed Matcher in.  The 5000 ohm resistor will simulate a half wave end fed for testing.  The switch will switch the bridge circuit and LED in/out for tuning with the capacitor.  The LED will dim when the bridge is balanced and the match is close to 50 ohms.  Then throw the switch to xmit without the bridge.  A previous post has more info on this kit and a schematic.
