I worked TX4T at 0532 UTC last evening, very strong signal to Kansas.
Perhaps not a big deal - per their web site TX4T has logged over 2,075 QSOs on
the Top Band.
But I live in a no outside antenna "C C & R" sub-division. The "antenna" I was using was
a 100 foot long piece of wire strung along side our house with the end on the garage. It
was put up for the ARRL 160M Contest to "hand out a few contacts" and I had not got
around to taking it down. Seeing the spots for TX4T I decided to try it.
My contact is a tribute to the sharp operators at TX4T and the Beverage which allowed
them to hear really well. And a nice QSB peak.
If you need French Polynesia on the Topband - this is the time to work it. TX4T is QRV
through Feb. 26 2000 UTC.
