Thread-topic: Cameron about Nicom or PSI

The Nicom generally has high VSWR at the band edges, especially the lower end.  Get an antenna that’s field tunable and make the effort to get the match as good as possible.  With lower power you need every watt radiated.

Could the think tank here on the forum give their input please?


We are constructing a transmitter site under 1Kw, omni-directional, non-commercial band and have narrowed the choice down to one of two antennas.  We have good price offers on both, but a difference of several hundred dollars between them.


One is the Nicom BKG77, the other the PSI FML-1B-HR.  Our Consulting engineer says either will work, but didn’t provide a preference or advice on either.  We want the best possible performance and signal for the available funds, so would appreciate any advice on these two you  might have.


Anyone using these particular units?  Strengths, issues, problems?
