North American Sprint February 1994
Category: Steath Antennas
Totals 120 * 29 = 3480
All exchanges sent were "S/N Tony CA".
RIG: FT-990, new FL7000 & 486DX2-66 MHz running TRLog v4.05 demo.
ANTs: My CC&R's prohibit external antennas, so I have an attic 20-10m fan
pole, a stealthly 40m delta loop and a new 80-15m fan ground plane in the
eucalyptus over the garden wall. We even planted a 20 foot high juniper
in front of the ground plane to keep people from seeing it.
I thought I had checked out the new arrangements throughly, but
when I QSY ed to 80m, my power with the amp was less than without! Like
only 2-3 watts! This is what I spent all that money for???
When I hit the F1 key to send a CQ with the voice keyer, the power out
returned to 500 w PEP. Aha! The east 80m radial passes just below the
shack floor as it hugs the eaves of the condo, so RF is getting into the
microphone! Switch to the ALC on the exciter and it is pegged whenever
I speak, but normal when the voice keyer is playing.
Does this contest have a single band low power class?
Net-net, my score is 1000 pts less than last fall, without the new
antennas and the amp.
