Re: 160m


 

Eric,
Shoot me a message when you do it tonight. I'm going to change the orientation my rotatable dipole.
Perhaps part of our problem last night was timing. We were way early.

Thanks for trying Milt. I didn't see you anywhere. I am running a K3 set on DATA. I think this is essentially USB. The waterfall is above the set frequency.

I did hear N5JDT in New Mexico again last night. Actually I was already asleep, but PSK Reporter recorded his call. I did work him two nights ago, so I have my very first 160m contact!

I will be on again tonight....

Thanks again.

Eric

PS; Dan, it took me 8 years to finally string up enough wire to work this band! :)

You guys are likely close enough to work ground wave :)

I had to do QRZ to figure out where you were - didn't know the city.

I've worked many a contest running the bands with friends who are close, doing 160M with the tuner screaming but if you are close you really don't need a proper antenna (and Chuck during the TDW before I got the 80M dipole modified to work as a T-hat).

Will scramble to get all of the antennas fixed when I get back there on the 18th - all of the feedlines are dropped down into my hostas so it shouldn't take long. I have a line running out of my window so I can pull them back in (if I hadn't had a break in I probably would have left them running into the house but now...).

Eric,
Can we give it a try?
Tell me when. My rotatable antenna for 160m should be able to make it
from my valley to yours.
1.807 mHz ok with you?

Hello All,

I finally got enough wire in the air to work 160m. Last night I [barely]
made my first contact. This antenna is a limited time offer as it must
come down when the XYL comes home at the end of the month.

Anybody want to set a sked for 160?
