I have almost finished making my new loading coil for 136 kHz,
and was testing it yesterday evening. It's a bit bigger than the
previous coil, and now includes a built-in variometer.
The outer coil is wound on two large plastic buckets (Type 2,
HD-PE) about 0.5 m diameter. I'll update my web site with full
construction details and pictures soon.
Yesterday (Friday), I was pleased to hear OK1DTN calling CQ at
18:25 UT (RST 559), but I'm not sure if he worked anyone. Later,
I heard F6BWO (459); ON7ZO (559); PA0BWL (569); and OH1TN (559).
Regards to all,
