I had one for a while, but never needed to tune it. It put a huge signal into AO-40, albeit with some polarity/spin fades. Worked real well terrestrially as well. Robert, KI4HXT always called it my picklefork beam.

>I again wish to inquire if there are any current or  past satellite station users with experience using the J Beam, Model MBM88/70cm. It was manufactured  by Jaybeam Ltd, Northampton England.  Specifically, what SWR figures were noted and are there any procedures for optimizing  SWR?  Any information appreciated, please reply off line.  Thanks.
