First AO-40 QSO!



Finally, I made my first AO-40 QSO! Instead of waiting to get everything
perfect I mounted the antennas on a 50+ year old camera tripod, hauled
everything out side, and had a great first QSO (cw). The victim was JE1UAZ.
My set up was as follows:

Receive:        Downeast Microwave converter
                Homebrew 17turn helix

Transmit:       FT-817 at 5 watts
                14 element linear polarized yagi
