Howdy, TowerTalkians --
Just put a Force 12 180C rotary dipole up for N7OS this weekend. It's
the biggest one and gives the most bandwidth. It's BIG - 83 feet long!
It's on a 72 foot crankup in a residential neighborhood in an okay
location. The owner was apprehensive about it as we had some initial tuning
problems. After getting it working, we went in to the shack to check it out.
His first contact was Antarctica - EM1HO! (I think that was the call.) The
next night he worked an I2 station - EU from the Pacific NW in the middle of
summer! Needless to say, he's plenty happy with it now.
Just thought you'd like to know.
73, Steve K7LXC
