Sitting here filling out a jillion reply QSLs and wondering:
I have been using a KT-36XA in the last few contests. Joke is that I've
basically only worked 10M as I am really a DXer first and don't like getting
a run going as I can't handle the mess. However, it is nice to call into a
pile and get in on the first call. And then there are the weak stations
that plead for a contact and they are in the QRN with syllables only. A few
dB more and? Or would I just find another layer?
So, it's no big deal to get the KT-36XA down, put up a M2 7 el 10M beam with
1.99 dB more gain.
Worth the price of the antenna?
