Workin K7CA:n ( Utah ) pari aamua sitten 160:lla ja tuli helkkarin
kovaa. Sitten kuulin, etta ukolla on 100W!

MUTTA - muuten on ukolla kaiketi "kylan suurin kypara"!

Valmistautunut selvasti myos PLC ongelmiin....

HNY All!

        In case you missed it, this must be the world's largest array
on 160.  I think Al is using three separate 8 element arrays with a
4-square for odd directions but I've asked him to post the details on
the Topband reflector.  This is truly incredible!

                                                73,  Bill  

                     Stew Perry Topband Challenge
Call: K7CA

Class: SO QRP
Grid Square: DM37
Operating Time (hrs): 13

QSOs:  222  Score: 3,840



The new 28 element antenna site worked great under what seemed poor conditions. 
 The band was not stable with S9 to east coast one minute and S5 on the same 
station a few minutes later. The 8 element broadside/endfire array at 70 
degrees was used for 90 percent of the contacts.  The 8 element array toward JA 
helped to work 5 JA's.  There is no commercial power at the site which helped 
with the noise level and battery power was used to power the site.  The rig was 
a Ten-Tec Omni 6+ with a bird wattmeter to keep power below 5 watts.  Great 
contest but it would be nice to see more stations participating.  73 to All, Al
