Hi Bernie, Jay and the others,
Yes Bernie you are right, living in a high rise with loads of neighbors I never had an amplifier but was just lucky to get the permission to put up my logperiodic on the roof. I have a simple FT900, now six years old, and a lot of persistence, can't stop going in a contest (when the condx are good) .
And Jim got it right when he compared PSK with soccer,
kids are playing it everywhere here, they don't need expensive gear, sometimes a tin can must do for a ball.
See you in the next Rumble!
