The only reason I don't have a giant WE system is that I can't afford it and I don't have room. I sold all  of my WE and Lansing field coil gear to my Silbatone friend back in 1989, because I know he would never sell it, he was putting together a ser...

Keep in mind that there are 50 ohm and 75 ohm BNC connectors. The inner pins are different sizes. If you plug a 50 ohm male into a 75 ohm female, you will stretch out the receptacle and, over time, ruin it.There are also impedance matching considerat...
