Trying out an experiment today with a homebrew vertical for 20m so I thought I’d gear up with some whispering – it started off a bit slow this morning (Mon), mostly EU but was soon getting some DX reporting, notably Leigh VK2KRR - NO WONDER !!
Running his Quad band Yagi up goodness knows what height
I do envy those who have the real estate for such installations – even if I had one I would still only use low power
Anyway we’re getting quite a few W’s and VE’s this afternoon although I notice the SF index has dropped quite considerably since early last week’s 157 Peak.
I had been having problems with an intermittent fault which I traced to the plug on one of the audio cables, seemed to have developed a break inside the jack from the interface – it’s running again with a “Temp” repair but need to make up some new cables – one of those VERY tedious but necessary jobs, how I hate making up leads – In fact, I Sooo cannot be bothered I might actually buy some ready made. I do have the time but I consider my time would be better spent on other aspects of the hobby.
