Re: first qsos tonight!




No problem, Jim, I'd be glad to help. You can reach me via email to
k0kn@qsl.net...

 My helix is probably not the best model, I've not even built the matching
section yet! It does, however, work!  The only item of any cost was the type
N chassis connector, the rest just scrap items laying around the house.

My next feed experiment will be a patch feed. Many people have reported
stronger signals than w/ a helix..

73,

 Kyle
