Re: Eton E100 Performs Well with 7" Loopstick Transplant

I know it's not an ultralight but has anyone been inside an E10? The
MW could use a little help.

Hey Kevin,

I remember that stuck loopstick of your E100 very well. The
good news
is that any stuck, crippled, mangled or broken loopstick is a
**perfect**
candidate for a transplant! And the E100 is undoubtedly the
easiest Ultralight
upon which to perform a loopstick transplant-- it's almost like
somebody
designed it for just that purpose.

There is only one coil with two, easily accessible connections.
Contrast that with the SRF-39FP (four tight connections to a tapped
double-coil
arrangement) and the DT-200VX (four micro-circuit connections to a
piggybacked
double-coil arrangement).

Transplanting a loopstick into the E100 is so simple, I could
probably
teach my 8-year old son to do it. If any one has ever dreamed of
doing a
loopstick transplant, THIS is the radio to guarantee success. Just
secure your
7" replacement loopstick on eBay (Channel Master Super Fringe model
6515), and
perform two easy solder connections. The performance improvement is
fantastic, because the stock loopstick is really a flat, mediocre
design extremely
skimpy on ferrite. The 530-Tacoma TIS that sounds so pathetic on a
stock unit
has a nuclear-level signal on the 7" loopstick :>)
