Re: 24 x 7 Finished

Knew what problem was as soon as it happened, but wasn't about to run out in cold and dark to tighten up slack on rope. 

Was on this morning a bit and managed to help KD0FIP out with one slot. I'll try to help others who need spots filled when I can.

Excellent, Jerry!  I was afraid you'd have to delay a week because of the antenna problem.  I'm glad you were able to get your Saturday spots filled and finish it off.

Good job - congratulations!

Hi Jerry
What spots are you missing?
Maybe we can help each other out some more.

Looks like the sloper problem is fixed from last night.  Turns out the main run was resting on the snow on roof.  All I had to do was wade through a foot of crunchy snow and raise antenna wire a couple of inches.  Checked antenna SWR  and is now flat or something near it.

Guess the wire and/or dacron cord stretched out.  Anyways, looks like I'm back in business on 160/80/40m.
