    So the VA shows about 950 W then?

    Yep... looks good.

    @K1KP - how about a status update please? Is the project still in "development" or has it been abandoned?

    Thanks for your interest in The Polar Explorer! Although I am diligently continuing development on the Polar Explorer, it is not yet ready for beta testing or release for sale. My main interest in this project is to bring this new technology to the Ham market. However, I want to make sure the technology is received well and not tainted by shortcomings in my particular implementation. Therefore I'm continuing to work to give it the best possible reception by Ham users.



    Thanks for your patience – watch this space for future news updates on the Polar Explorer!



    73,

    It's hard to believe its been over a year since our trip to Dayton. In that time I have continued to study this new technology as my full time vocation, filling up another 250 pages of lab notebooks. Although I have closed the list of beta testers (I have more than I can support), I do have your information on file Bob and will be in touch when it's time to start beta.

    Thanks for your continued interest,

    -Tony, K1KP

    He asked, "Any idea what the release date will be?"
    Seems like a valid question under the circumstances.
