Important info about Varylink:
10th.January 2017, upd Jan
- the white plastic holder (below the
varylink) may not be of metal
- the distance to metal parts shall be greater
than the diameter of the varylink
- do not use wires to fix the varylink, instead use TESA
film or insulation tape,
or better: VELCRO belt
- do not forget the current balun ( = 3 Ferrite Toroid
- at the right side you see the wires lead to the motor, motor
is inside of the gray tube,
you see the screw that holds the motor.
The varylink has a very high impedance. The output to
the radiator may have up to 200 KOhm
(depends from the frequency). Therefore, the total
insulation resistance must 10 times greater than
the output, otherwise the loss goes up. (If the insulation
resistance is 10 times greater than the output,
than goes 9% of the output power into loss.)
Therefore, the insulation resistance shall be more
than 20 MOhm! Good are 100-500 MOhms!
And: On 80m can occur up to 2 cm long sparks (with 100 W
Do not install on the balcony, instead install on the roof, as
you need free sight to all directions.
