OK, inverted L is not the best receiving antenna for DX (no surprise).

Tonight on 160, I heard VE1ZJ working UA9MA.  I heard nothing of the UA9

NT0V then worked UA9MA.  Still no UA9MA/

This all occurred at 0128 UTC, gray line for UA9MA, darkness for North

Noise level on my inverted L is about S5.  Not the best, but certainly not
awful.  I can hear the Europeans on the inverted L.

Is a beverage the best solution in this case?  I have the room for a 2
wavelength bev, but it's directional.  Probably good to point it towards
JA/UA9/UA0, that's where I need the help.
