Today I had my first SteppIR x SteppIR QSO.

It started with EG9IA on 17 followed by 9K2OK.  Then
EG9IA on 20.  I moved off frequency and said 1-2-3
test and was called by 8Q/DL1SMT.  Other QSO's logged
ZX7XX, JY5HX and 4X4WN.  Just about every contact got
S9++ reports, including a long chat with DF2BO from

The day was topped off with a two-way SteppIR with
GW3YDX.  I had a bit of fun and held my tongue as he
told me about his antenna and went through the 180
degree demo.  I then fessed up and we had a grand chat
comparing notes.

I can imagine Ron, YDX's reaction...don't keep us in 
the dark,  what did Thomas, DF2BO say?

Do you have a sense of how it's working, other than
folks hear you?  i.e.  f/b & gain?  The 12' boom should
start to become a limiting factor on 20.

N2EA, jim
