This is always a fun contest for me but the QRN was pretty rough on the
low bands, S9. No sooner does one neighbor get a noisey door bell
xformer fixed then another starts sounding off! Local power company was
a great help in finding these things. They have been really been causing
alot of problems in this Texas sized heat! I appologize to those that
called that I counldn't copy on the low bands. Rig is FT1000 to Hygain 2
el 40 at 90', stacked quads on 2nd tower (I wish it were up! That stuff
is in the garage.) In reality the antenna farm on this postage size lot
is a 2 element 10/15 quad @ 30', a single element 20 delta loop pulled
up in a sweet gum tree, a 40 square loop in a pine tree and a 80 GP with
2 elevated radials in another pine tree. For 160 I added linear loading
to 80 GP and had one elevated radial wrapped around the lot. The
slum-lord wont even think of letting me trim on limb on one tree so I
can add 20 to the quad! I just need to get off of dead center and buy a
residence in an unrestriced area.
