Thanks to John G3JRL for a nice CW QSO on Saturday. I cannot give you an
accurate 'so many dBs above noise' John, but you certainly sounded 599
to me. Keep improving that antenna and there is no reason why you
shouldn't work all of Europe. In theory, my very long wire shouldn't
work, but I think the length of wire simply looks like a lot of top
loading for the 60 ft vertical section. Actually it's not vertical but
slopes up to a tall tree on top of a bank, then there is about 1,000
feet of wire around a field.
Bryan, nice to know you heard me on a proper receiver! Sounds like the
filter on the AR88 is not sharp enough.
Jim, glad you QSOd John. You were S9 plus as usual.
I will try and get on 136 CW at weekends as time allows.
73 to all, Tom G3OLB
