Jerry ..is it true that when working with a tilted vertical it is best mounted on rotator ? ...inquiring minds want to know.
sorry i couldn't resist ... hi hi
... and if you want to work /mm stations put antenna is a barrel of water !
No, no. If you want to work across the equater, you turn it upside down. If you want to work the opposite hemisphere, you turn it sideways.

I asked him. I had made several contacts there in the weeks before including him (VK3BM). The mornings we talked with his beam oriented toward Europe and I also was able to work Reunion Island at the same time. Later on he said that he swung it around and came across the Pacific. I googled his QTH and immediately understood why we had the QSO. The beam antenna on his tower was bigger than his house.
I was curious as to why I got him both times that is why I asked. I did the same thing with a station near Adeleide too.
When the prop is in, it is in even for qrp stations. Sure do miss those days though. Haven't had contact with the Aussie's in quite a while now.
Jerry I tried to rotate the vertical but nothing changed??????? Maybe I should mount it upside down but then I would have to operate prq. Ya had to go there didn't ya.
Rotate the vertical, of course !
When using a vertical how do you determine if your contact is long path or short path.

Great catch! I've seen him at my QTH but no joy here.
I was blown away when I reached Australia on long path. I was on 20m using a vertical on the roof with 1.5 watts.
As you said, "when it's in it's in! Ya gotta love this mode!
