Re: TNX to VE2CWV



Thanks Tony.  I made four contacts this weekend, all on RS13.  Limited by my
antennas right now, best I can figure.

The RX side 3 element Yagi does fair except when the bird comes overhead.
Makes sense.  Going to try and wire dipole for that side sometime this week.

The TX side I don't seem to be able to get "in" except during a short peroid
of the pass when the bird is close to my QTH.  Funny, when I do get in well
I can go way back on the power and still hear myself very well.  More
tinkering on this antenna setup.

By the way, I made some 10m SSB contact on the FT-847 today and got real
good reports on it.  Kinda surprised me a little bit.  It seems to be a
pretty good rig on 10m anyway.  Now to scare up some SSB contacts on 2m down
here in LA (Lower Alabama).

Thanks for the help and suggestions to everyone.  Have a good week!
