many thanks for first qso outside Italy in
This morning io was in my contest station, licated in Porto
Mantovano, 12 km north of the city of Mantova, the TX is 2 x IRF 640, running
about 150 Watts output, feeding a vetrical wire long 80 meters, slooping down
on a tall tower used here to rebroadcast TV station.
The antenna is in origin a 2 element slooping dipole for
160, so now the est slooping dipole is short circuit in feed point, and feeded
at the base with about 2 mH coil.
Very nice condition this morning, but working only you,
Cesare I5TGC, and listen someone calling me at 136.7, but at 136.6 there is a
cw carrier, so asked to qsx at 137.00, but may i have generated some
