the 40/80 inv vee is acting up, so used the 40/30 vertical with about 30 radial
for the first time.  It has 500 ft of coax and 100 ft of hardline.  I did not
feel particularly loud and the run was not too fast, but occasionally a couple
guys would call in at once.  So it is to be seen how this works.  Traced the
inverted vee problem to the center W2AU balun.  One side had just worn out the
stranded wire.  There was some evidence of arcing.

36 WPM, 41 QSOs in the first 15 minutes.  The Radio Sport headphones are better
than the INRAD W1 only due to being quieter and hence the audio gain did not
have to be so high.  Lull at 0322Z..  At 0345Z had 117.  Worked a few Europeans
which was surprising.
