TS440S/AT, Heil boom, & my brand new NA V8.03 which came on Friday on a 5.25"
bend-to-h*ll diskette. No 5.25" capability at home so a quick trip to work
on Saturday morning and a prayer allowed me to get the file to 3.5".
Cushcraft AP-8 vertical, ground mounted, no radials & 40M Vee apex at 50 feet.
Hoped to get 200 Q's for possible certificate for NC, but I messed up and
took long off period at the wrong time (XYL did enjoy sit down dinner and
KI3V/7 wow!!!! Absolutely loudest signal here on 15 & 20. Among the loudest
on 40, and heard him at S9 on 75, but he QSYed before I could get him. Second
place for wow on 20 goes to VE4GV.
Tnx to all. Hopefully see ya'll in the sprints.
Projects before SS: Put up some metal for 10/15/20 (How I wish that was
possible :-;( ). Seriously: get radials for vertical & get 75/80 Vees up.
73 de KI4HN, Jim
