9 hours of fun and extremely high noise
lots of guys wouldn't move with me: guess they didn't need rare MD
Icom 736, no cw filters, yet; 100w
KT34A @ 70', 1000' horizontal loop at 65'

after Sept VHF test.  UHF test score (simultaneous contest) also

Subject: FT-1000 Front-End PIN Diodes

Hi All,

I asked this question of the reflectors a couple of months back but 
got no concrete answers. CQWW is now rapidly approaching so it's 
getting critical!

We have an FT1000 which had some of its front-end PIN diodes smoked. Getting 
the standard Japanese part is proving very difficult over here. The 
rig currently has BA379s in - we haven't had time to do a measurement 
of what effect that has on system performamce. 

Can anyone shed any light on alternative PINs for the front-end (with 
similar or better performance than the originals) which may be easier 
to obtain over here.

Reminds me of when K7JA staged a photo for the Sweepstakes results with
him operating the contest from a swimming pool, with hand-mic in hand
and radio sitting on the edge of the pool.  A zillion guys wrote the
ARRL complaining about the danger of electrocution, blah blah blah.

Subject: WAE Rules
Message-ID: <199508071401.HAA18120 at>

Not to discourage others from operating WAE, but I'm considering trying
WAE CW even if on and off.  Seems I saw a complete set of rules on the
Internet somewhere.  Would someone please send me (or post) a complete
set of rules?  I'm a bit confused on QTCs, etc.  Thanks.
