Although very weak due to the short length of the beverage on 160 (as
everyone has helped me to understand), I was able to hear VQ9LA and 8Q7VR
just above the noise on top band.   Now on 40 meters an hour before sunset
with 8Q7DV, the difference was quite dramatic.  ESP reception on the 43 foot
vertical, Q5 copy on the beverage (pointed right at 8Q7)
