Your intro has a ground loop.

I was listening to some Ham guys talking on a repeater here in the UK and
saying that neither of them would ever buy MFJ stuff again because
reliability and quality had begun to nose dive pretty badly on several
items they have bought recently. In particular, they were talking about an
antenna tuner that when it malfunctioned and was opened to discover why,
one of the leads had been taped into place and not soldered ! That is
pretty staggering lowlife quality control. It seemed to them that they were
company in suicide mode.

Mine has worked flawless from day one. I have had it for over 15 years. I
did add the CW board last year. It's a very good radio.

Author Radninja88 (1 year)
Sometimes you just have to give it a wing! If you have an attic big enough
for an inverted V antenna, you have a lot of room to experiment with
antennas, so don't worry about getting out. Just keep experimenting with
