Subject: Rotor Advice needed
I am seriously considering of purchasing a rotor for my
antenna and I seem to be puzzled over the choice of either HAM IV or the
Yaesu equivalent (or other)! It will be used to turn a KT34XA and maybe in
the future a 2 el 40m yagi in a not-very-windy country!!!Plenty of contest
activity! I have seen the HAM IV and I know is a solid rotor,
but I have never heard any comments for the YAESU rotor or other!!!
Money is a problem!
Please send reply direct to me!
If there is enough demand I will summarise for the reflector!
Many thanx for your attention!

Conditions were much better than I thought they would be. It was very
warm here with thunderstorms around though we never shut down.
160 was VERY noisy. We tried a EWE, but the soil was too rocky to put
in even a 3' ground rod and not enough wire for a radial. Local
farmers not friendly for beverages except the liquid type. I herd
more than I usually do, but I know I was an alligator most of the
0330-0600Z US opening time. Zagreb is 2 hours ahead of GMT in the
summer. Not fun in the last few hours of the contest when you know
you have an hour drive home and still get at 06 local for work....
Congrats to KG1D, K5ZD, K3ZO, WC4E on the large signals. 350Q.
80M was also noisy. The EWE suffered from a balun of 20T on 20u perm
material. We had good openings to the US but not many stations. 800Q
40M was THE band. Our 4el KLM was doin' its thing. I never got to
operate there, but they were busy. Mega sigs from the US until well
past 0800. 1600Q
20M was a ball. Jackie (F2CW=9A5CW) and I shared this and 15M. Though
I was only able to get the meter over 100 once or twice, it was very
steady at about 40-50 most of the time. It is a different game over
here - I don't think we had more than two dozen zero pointers out of
6K+ QSOs. 7 over 6 on a hill does a good job for us, even when split
between the US and JA. The ICE filters have eliminated the
inter-station interference except when one of the 15M elements stack
hits a 160M sloper or the upper guys (dropped to turn the middle ant).
The tower is a brute and if the wind is less than 30mph, they drop the
upper set of guys(!). 2000+Q
15M was a daylight porducer on the order of 20M. Since it was logged
on my laptop, I have the line score:
Totals 1080 Q 1.5/q 462 mults = 741,048
Jackie worked it Sunday night until almost 10PM.
10M was a surprise. More than double the number of Q's from last year
even though the 4x6el stack was not used (sorry, K5GN), this is purty
cool. Usually we can hear a mosquito fart in Louisiana, but this was
just a TH7 at 70'. Again the ICE filters kept 10M out of the rest of
the stuff making life easier on us all. 650+ QSOS at 1.2 ea.
There is much more to be done with this group here. One of the
sparkplugs of this group, Edo 9A2AW, emigrated as a T9 refugee and is
now a resident of Chicago as KB9???, (limited by his English license
exam taking skills). He would be a super addition to one of the SMC
groups. ETO Dick promised us a deal on a 91B when he was here but we
haven't heard a thing since he went back over the horizon. We need a
new 40M amp, the one they have is almost older than I am but has hair.
9A1A does not link the computers since most all are laptops and the
LOOP is rf sensitive. We could do a much better job on mult chasing,
especially in the WW. The possibilities are endless....
It was a ball. I got here on Wed and did not have my internal clock
adjusted nor had I gotten much sleep. I slept through most of the day
Saturday after doing 160M the first 9 hours. Operated solid for the
rest of the contest, 15M, then 160, then 15M then last 8 hours on 20.
Love that band!
By the way, The QSL address is Box 108, Zagreb 41000 (not 106 as
Oh, the score? Put us down for something in the area of 15M+. Half
the computers were running CT8 and I only had my update copy of CT9
with me. No 8to9, etc. Gotta get a copy of tools9.zip from CT-BBS.
Do vidjenja ...like DSW
