congratulations to your first G-land QSO. It`s really grand success with
your antenna. I think the main reason is that you put the coil ontop the
chimney and no longer heat up the chimney with HF,hi. Best DX to you, the
baby boy is now a boy.
And to all others: At this time I am not even baby boy because my antenne
is down by storm. That is not too bad, but the mast with rotor is also
damaged and I have to put it down to see what happened. So for the next
time I am not QRV,sri. (only e-mail, packet and local 2m,hi). 73 Walter

Hello Laurie, hello all,
that qso was very special for both of us: Your 1st DFCW contact
and my 1st 2way-QSO with G-land. Thanks, Laurie, you've really made this a
I am using only a short (15m) and low (6m above house and ground) antenna.
This was the first QSO after moving the loading coil from indoors to a
rooftop position on saturday. With that change, the gain had improved from
-45dBi to -39dBi, and my ERP is a blasting 4mW (!) now.
When you called you were OO with about -102dBm (S4, -2dBuV/m), but during
QSO the signal faded down to -10dBuV/m and became barely readable at the
Also, the wires swinging in the wind caused substantial resonance shifts
tx-power variations. I recorded a spectrogram .bmp which I could send you
Hope to see you again soon... especially in DFCW, its a fantastic mode (at
least for the very little baby boys like me).
