UPS driver delivered the 599zx just after lunch time.
Wow, hooked up in only a few minutes. Quick look
at quick instructions, and bam --- noise level dropped
a bunch of dBs! Just what I was hoping for.
Now I am hearing DX, calling and calling, but they
are not hearing me! But, just finished calling the SO7U
for 45 minutes or so; I am "pretty sure" he came
back to me, as QSB was pretty steep. I know he
said "something 7M". Hot dog, I went back to him
with 1500 out, and at the right time he said "QSL"
and immediately QRZ. He was working split down:
he at 18165 near the top of the US 17 meter band
I caught him, if I did get in his log, at 18156 or so.
Just have to wait and see.
Will try to catch them on another band for "insurance".
However, I could not have heard him without the 599zx!
More info to follow after I get some more hours under
the belt with this new gadget and the RX-340.
