Ouch!! Had a break in my 20-10 antenna fed line late Friday eve. Did not get it
repaired till Saturday noon. Before climbing tried to use a lower and smaller
20 meter antenna. No good.  Just proves that " big antennas high in the sky" is
the way to go. While for this little pistol high means 20 meters. it is amazing
the difference. Had to fix the antenna (broken Coax). For this 82 year old it
was a bit slow going. First to go up there and find out what was wrong, and
then getting a soldering iron etc up to the break. Took me 2 hours of prime
time. What a difference. I heard more stations and they heard me. Thank you for
all the Q's. For the first time was able to work 3 stations in 1 minute several
times. 2 stations a minute for an hour. This operating SO1R. Wish that my SO2R
setup was up and running. Maybe next year. As for propagation Sunday was much
better than Saturday. Despite being tired and sometimes suffering from mental
confusion was able to work through. Looked at 10 but felt the rate was not good
enough to spend time there. Played catchup until 7 pm Sunday. Then looked for
any mults that could be heard. Once again it was a very good CQWW RTTY/ Hope
that conditions keep improving. 73 best de de Jerry NO2T
Used a software defined radio, Flex-3000 throughout. No knobs!!
