Me too, and I still have the (somewhat faded) QSL card! At the current 
QTH it doesn't work too well as It's straight under an aluminium 
skillion roof. The original QTH was Petty Officers Mess at NAS Nowra.. 
worked just fine under the terracota tile roof.

Strung it outside to see if it still goes and it works a treat. Quick, 
simple and highly effective.
