Finally on air again after some years without antennas. Put up at Titanex V160S
vertical - 26,7 meter high. The aim of this contest was to check out how the
antenna preforms on top band. Just hours after finnishing the setup of the
antenna a terrible snowstorm occured. Had some 70 cm snow, and putting out
radials was difficult. So, with only 30 radials on rock I really did not suspect
any great preformance.
But what happened - over 1100 qsos without any rx antenna. I am very happy for
this score, and will finnsih the antenna completley when most of the snow has
gone. Hope to increase the signal by 1-2 db when putting out radials.
Without rx antennas I did not aim for any records, but have agreed with my
farmer neighbours to put up beverages next winter.
LA9GX Tom joined me for some hours saturday evening, and we had a great time on
the band. Used N1MM logger software, and I am really impressed. No doubt what
logging software to use in the future - great.
Really enjoyed this.
