Better Eu opening on 15 than I expected Sat. AM. Got to get my tower up! The
Explorer 14 at 30' consistently works better than I think it will, but just
about anything at 80' will work better, especially on 40m. The HF6V on the
ground in the back yard with 100 watts is almost useless for DX. I tried to
work a couple of JAs and it was futile. (Need to fix the FL2100 on 80m and
load the tower).

Regarding the tower, does anybody have any thoughts on how close to a house
foundation I can put the footing for my tower? My house has no basement and
is current  (1986) construction. The tower is an LM470, so the base will be
4' X 4' X 7.5' deep. The closer I can get it to the house, the more turning
radius I get. Thanks in advance.

The ARRL has been awarding cups and pins to Sweepstakes participants for a
couple of years and the increase in participation has been nothing short
of amazing.  Sorry, but I think it's a fine idea for getting the casual
participants to make an effort.  I would draw the line at cash prizes or
the like, but a pocket calculator?  I have a hard time getting worked up
about that.  Ham radio seems to be the last hobby which has figured out
that a small, tangible reward makes the difference between participating
and not to many people, for whatever reason.
