Hello Carsten, No. 1 is the one specified by Tom -- just a different way of expressing the Fair Rite Products 2873000202 number. No. 2 is about half the size -- with half-size holes for the wire -- a

Often I have observed the band open and close on a single CQ. A couple of times I missed a new country because the CQ was too long and the sending station wasn't using break-in! 73/Jon AA1K

Pete, As I was planning my antenna farm here at the new QTH 5 years ago, I took great pains to lay out most of the Beverages on one side of the property (12 acres) and the towers on another. Until re

Hello Ivan, Avoid multiples of 5 kHz -- 1810, 1815, 1820, 1825, 1830, 1835, 1840 kHz etc. because we have BC spurs and harmonics on those frequencies in most areas. Everything in between is generally

Hi Eric, I use carbon composition resistors on all my Beverages. I just solder them to the wire, clamp the other end to the ground rod with a hose clamp and let it hang in the open air. An advantage

Heard JA7NI call one CQ today at 1020z, peaking 559. He couldn't hear me. VK6ABL called in at 1050z, just before sunrise, but weak and copy was rough. No copy on DU9/N0NM today. Both JA7NI and VK6ABL

Hi Don, I just let my resistors hang in the open air. Most of the connections are soldered, or at least tightly twisted if I was in a hurry and didn't bring the blow torch/soldering gun along. The gr

XYL AB1P gave me a 160-6m screwdriver antenna (KJ7U type) for my birthday, which I finished installing on Friday on my 2000 VW Jetta diesel. While motoring to a hamfest in Maryland early Saturday mor

I got this same idea from Tom when he spoke at the Dayton antenna forum a couple years ago, and I noticed the big chokes on the slides he was showing of his tower. In my case, I used 6-inch diameter

Hi Brad, When I got home from work today, around 0600z, XR0X had a good signal, peaking S7 at times. But they were having a very difficult time hearing US stations. I did hear them work GI3OQR, and a

I caught Nick on 20m cw from the mobile on way home from work around 0630z, and he explained that he was having serious problems with the island's power supply shutting down at night. We did give it

Did most of the world forget we have a new 160 meter band plan this year? I heard HUNDREDS of European stations below 1843 kHz last night, and Caribbean stations, who were not listening above 1843 kH

Ted, Two days ago they answered my CQ on 1822 kHz at 1119z; they were 579 with flutter on the signal. I paused to let anyone else call them or for them to take the freq, but no one called and H7DX QS

EA3JE had a booming signal at 0630z. H7DX and TI9M had good signals at sunrise here (1136z). Not a whisper from DU9/N0NM or JT1CO. Band was very quiet at both periods. 73/Jon AA1K

Woke up at 1130z to find the band super quiet, VK3ZL easy copy while Bob was working W8JI. Could just barely copy A35VK a few minutes later, then VK6HD was 579 at 1150z. Suddenly at 1210z the "quiet"

Hello Brad, I have had Beverages run over chain link, field-wire and 3-strand barbed wire fences at two previous locations. They worked great. Years ago Barry W9UCW wrote an article on Beverages in Q

I was surprised to hear the number of U.S. SSB stations in the NAQP contest this weekend operating well below 1843 kHz. Has the ARRL rescinded the new 160 meter band plan it adopted several months ag

Heard VP8GEO 569 at 0617z today, calling CQ with no takers. When I touched the key there was no output -- apparently my 24VDC power supply that powers various switching relays had conked out. By the

Anyone know if ZD9IR is QRV yet on 160 -- or still plans to be? Any recent activity from SV2ASB/A, or plans? Anyone know when 5R8FU will next be on the band, or way to get a hold of him? 73/Jon AA1K
