Thank you Alan for the good reports - no change in Tx or antenna but
some ground system improvements - now includes long sheep fencing and
copper pipe thrown into pond (narrowly missing goldfish!) - antenna
current now nearly 3 amps with 200 watts.
I5MXX is a consistently good signal here although I have yet to work
him. His signal was only slightly down on Dick's PA0SE when they both
called John 'GVC on Saturday.
No sign whatsoever of OZ8NJ down here when others were working him.
Finbar's signal with new antenna is an excellent 589.
Mike 'XDV also has an excellent signal down here - coke bottle is
Nice strong signal from GB2CPM despite ground problems. Do you use a
full size quarter wave Peter?
