Bernie -

Thanks. I knew you guys would come through for me. I can't wait to
try this out!

Gosh, I'll practically be QRO with all of eight watts!

P.S. It seems to me that in this configuration, the "splitter" is
acting more like a "sucker," sucking out the PSK-20's three watts
and pulling it along as the 817 pushes its own five watts through.
So I think we should call this the Sucker Circuit.

Steve,

You've got to use a splitter.

You put the splitter on the antenna connector of your PSK-20.
Connect the
Anetnna connector from your FT-817 to one side of the splitter and the
other side of the splitter to your antenna. When the 5 watts from your
FT-817 goes thru the PSK-20, it will take the 3 watts out with it
also. And everybody knows 5 + 3 = 8.
I figgered that all out by myself.

Bernie -

When you hook up amps in series, do they add like resistors (1 + 1 +
1 = 3) or capacitors (1 + 1 + 1 "=" 0.577)? I forget the rule.

I need to know, so that I can figure out how I should hook up my
three-watt PSK-20 and my five-watt FT-817 to get eight watts out.
