Friday evening had great conditions with a no local noise, but had a social
event with my wife. got home at 10:30 and ran until midnight. Had a event I
had to go to on Saturday morning, so no late night. But I got up at 6:30 Sat
morning and was called by 2 JA's which surprised me. Heard no EU at all.
Sat night the conditions did not seem as good, I did not feel very loud, could
not get much of a run going at all, spent a lot of time S&P, but not real
productive. A lot of local noise. On the vetical S-9+ at times, but on the
K9AY loop with the preamp off down to S-2, but still I missed a lot.
Some very loud signals, you would think they were next door, even though in the
I had challenged myself to beat my Q total on the ARRL 160m contest, but fell
about 240 short, but if I stayed up past mid-night for the night shift I might
have done it.
AL-80b at 800w
