Hi all,

I have just subscribed to this reflector- A friend of mine told me there
was something about EA7PP's operation during this w/e 160m contest.

Someone suggested EA7PP uses a remote in the US as his signal was on the
RBN outstanding. More than being an offending remark it's a compliment.

We spent yesterday the whole evening at EA7PP's contest station setting a
modest EWE pointing to US and built in site a receiver protecting device.

Set up is very simple, an inverted L up to 18 metres on a fiber glass ple
and then about 21 metres horizontal to the tower (23m) . Only 2 tuned
elevated radials circling the plot as it is very small. Soil is very
conductive and it has been raining a lot during the last couple of weeks.

This is a rural area, almost no cellphone network coverage. Internet
connection is poor, a 4 miles 2.3 GHz link to a home in town, as the good 5
GHz was damaged during a storm.

The contest started last night and I was still soldering wires to the
protection boxes while listening to some good East Coast signal.

I wrote a message to Pepe to his WhastApp. When he wakes up from his siesta
first thing he will ask me is "what the hell is a remote?"

Zé Carlos, muito grato pelos elogios, our tiny contest farm works! it's

Jose, EA7KW
