Dear TopBanders,
I have got a lot of E-mails as reaction to my last submission concerning the
VP6DX top band operation. Almost all reports where negative criticizing me
for working them ( VP6DX ) under my 3 legal callsings which could cut the
opportunity for the other stations to work DXpediton.
I apologize to those who feel it that way but I spent lot of an effort ( and
money ) to build up my antenna systems ( see: ) ; the test of
it under 
" Dxpeditons conditions "  is the only reward for me. And due to its
effectiveness I usually do not occupy the frequency for long time.
The main reason of my report was the appreciation of Dietmar´s low band team
Further I wanted to impart results of my experience with 8 Circle antenna
which can be seen mostly as more better antenna than widely used Beverages.
I want to underline that I am doing ( 44 years on 160m band ) this HAM radio
hobby for my enjoy as doing the same you all, I hope. 
Finally I must mention that I also did one's bit by my personal DXpeditions
activities by operating as T30R, T32RD,T33RD,J8OK, KP2/OK1RD, 3B8/OK1RD.
3D2TN etc
. All expeditions above I paid from my own pocket without sponsors
and did it for HAM community mainly and for my personal enjoy of course too.
Thank you all for understanding
