Smoke Test Ended

I left this beacon running for quite a while, and it's just not making it.

I'm now making refinements to cabling, antenna, etc.
Perhaps most importantly, connecting to GPS receiver for time and frequency sync.

This time, I'll make a trial run on 20m CW and have some fun that way before
trying beacon mode again.

I'm thinking the three factors contributing to the failure to make a contact:

  • Transceiver alignment
  • Timing (manual instead of GPS disciplined)
  • Antenna
