 From around 2300z, AZ 237 Deg, EL 12 Deg, MA 17, SQ 14 : very loud
To around     0330z, AZ 263 Deg, EL   5 Deg, MA 78, SQ 33 : very weak with QSB

Gear: 40cm offset-dish with 3-turn helix mounted on N-female connector, 
directly to LNA MKU232A2, through 4m of 75 coax (N-conn) to AOR AR5000.

Dish is pointed out through the window on the 4.th floor, around 0330 at a 
very bad angle. The helix does not yet have it's reflector/gp at the back, 
just 3 turns of 1.5mm copperwire soldered to the centre-pin of an N-female.

I wonder if the isolation on the wire has a lot of absorbation, haven't 
removed it.
Any comments on this?
It's the kind of wire used to lay out wiring by electricians, inside walls etc.

What are YOU using, Larry?
