Mark-V & Alpha-Delta DX-B sloper

Over double my previous scores in this one. Installing the DX-B this year
made all of the difference although I was a little disappointed that DX was
not as plentiful as in the CQWW CW on 160. Also a first was to work Canada
from NL to BC but did not work MB or YT. Also worked the west coast states
but only EB in W6. I felt like the DX-B was getting out very well even
though it is a minimal antenna for 160 although I was hearing S8 noise
levels all weekend. It sure beats trying to tune up an R5 vertical as I've
done in previous years.
