Total Score = 1,526,511 Club: Soapbox: I spent the last 10 months adding 3
more 4 squares to my property and it
really paid off. I now have 17 HF
verticals in my back yard (no towers
or dipoles). The 40, 20 and 15 4 sqrs
rock and the 10 meter array is so so
(hard to get single direction arrival
signals with a wide open band on 10
meters). Speaking of ten meters, how
many things can you say "were the best
in ten years"? The flux and A index
say conditions were fair to good, but
for most of the weekend, they were
outstanding here in East Tennessee.
Hard to believe the conditions are
expected to get better over the next
18 months. I seemed to loose really
good prop late Sunday afternoon. I
could no longer be first thru third in
line for Asia and Pacific stations. I
am a firm convert to SO Assisted.
Growing long in the tooth and needing
sleep make the use of the Internet and
computer logging a perfect
solution. Working Fred, K3ZO, in
Tailand reminded me how many times I
have worked him in the last 50 yrs
long path from Tailand, Argentina,
Equador, Singipore and other places.
I think the only place I work him
short path is from HI8 and on 6 and 2
meters...!
