around the world!
MFJ's DX Beacon Monitor lets you
see which beacon you're hearing on your
transceiver an LED lights on its world
map to show you the beacon location
and where to point your antenna.
It's fascinating to hear and watch each

The International Beacon Network provides a reliable source of signals for determining HF propagation 24 hours a day.
It consists of 18 beacons around the
world. Each beacon transmits on 14.1,
18.11, 21.150, 24.93 and 28.2 MHz. The
transmit sequence moves westward from
New York across North America, Asia,
Pacific to Africa, Europe, South America.
On each frequency, each beacon transmits for ten-seconds its call sign at 22
wpm CW and a one-second dash at 100

MFJ-186RC lets you switch
from 24 hour format or 12 hour format and to different time zones
(Pacific, Mountain, Central, and Eastern). Also has running seconds display and day-of-week and date display.
This MFJ radio-controlled wrist watch has an alarm function
and also can be used as a stopwatch for standard, accumulated,
split-time, or competitor measurements.
A backlight will illuminate the LCD display for about three
seconds in a brilliant blue.
Year, Month, and Day can be displayed in calendar mode.
MFJ-186RC is water-resistant up to 3 ATM no more fear of the
rain as you work hamfest security.
MFJ's new Manually Tuned Screwdriver
Antennas let you operate all bands 80-6
Meters continuously including all WARC
bands and the new 60 Meter bands
(depends on model). It far outperforms
other HF compact antennas.
An extra long 10 foot (19 collapsed)
telescoping whip lets you really get out and
work rare DX! A 4 foot (23 collapsed)
telescoping stainless steel whip is included
for mobile and limited space operation.
It has a highly efficient loading inductor.
For highest Q, the coil is wound with
heavy gauge wire with wide spaced turns
on a core that is mostly air.
A tuning sleeve electrically removes
turns to eliminate detrimental self-resonance effects that "wander leads" cause.
The tuning sleeve is on the low impedance side of the coil to minimize power
robbing stray capacitance and detuning
hand capacitance effects. Tuning is
smooth, easy and sure the frequency
stays put after you tune it. No tedious
back forth trial error tuning procedure.

SWR Protection prevents amplifier damage if you switch to the
wrong band, use the wrong antenna or have a high SWR. Overpower protection enables if output forward power or reflected
power exceeds a safe level. Output power is automatically reduced
to prevent amplifier damage by controlling ALC to exciter.
