From the left coast, we have JA�s, HL�s VK�s, and the occasional BY station show up daily. DU isn�t rare either, nor is HS. YB is in my digital log also. We have to occasionally run KH6�s to keep them happy too.

I sure wish we could get some of that East Coast, EU type DX even just from time to time would be nice...

We� ve had our different 070 Club Operating Events, where I�ve sat here and actually watched Chuckie, N2EOC, run EU stations on 80 meters from NJ!

I know that Karen, W4KRN has done the same.

Short of putting up something that�s rotatable, or a Rhombic, I guess more wire is what I need from here for the �DC� bands...

Re: Repeater Grounding.

boat.anchor@...
 

How a conversation can be warped over repition.
My Original comment
"I was also blessed with very rocky ground which means no RF ground."
I still maintain that the repeaters used folded dipoles or as Milt suggested 1/2 wave antennas.
This shud not be confused with Motorola grounding all the equipment on a granite peak.
In my mind these will always be two distinct issues and while one can supplement the other
they should not be lumped together. A crappy HF RF Ground remains the same even if all
the Moto stuff has a ground.
off the soapbox and gone out for the day so let the education start.
have a good one

Sorry Milt,  but the guest at our club meeting wasn't talking about grounding of antennas, but grounding of everything else atop a mountain in multi-million dollar , multi-site installation for border patrol in Maine. He was the project engineer in charge from Motorola and our club President was one of the instructors from Motorola who taught around the country for Motorola.

There are many hams in my area who either work for Motorola or are retired/former .Motorola employees. Our current club President is a retired Motorola CPA, and the Treasurer is a current Motorola Engineer. 

I doubt that the ham who gave the program was kidding about grounding the site, not the antenna. Motorola is heavy into grounding sites. The site he was talking about is only accessible by helicopter.  So,  I  "Jerry-you-not " !

You guys are being “Jerry’-d”
Many repeater antennas’ whether they be dipoles, Yagi’s or verticals have no ground.
Why?
They’re ½ wave.

Those repeaters were probably VHF with dipole antennas.
It is about 125 miles to Seattle and I can get their repeaters with a HT.
Not really a fair comparison me thinks.
It's only about a mile direct to salt water. Just a long wire would do it.

I was in there around 1400-1600 UTC, but got a call for a job so have to leave shack in a few minutes.  Wish I could retire, but I figured it out and I can do it 5 years after I'm dead.

Worked a handful of usual Europeans , mostly F's  and DL's with a lone G.  No sign   of any 9A's though.  They must all be in hiding !  :-)

Surprisingly I enjoyed a HUGE opening on 15m for about 2.5-3 hours. Worked both JTxx and PSK modes and made 17 calls total, 15 of them from different DX entities (meaning no dupe entities and non-US). Even snatched a TA call outta the mess!!
So I am satisfied with 15m this AM. I will admit the PSK contacts were a bit slimmer pickings though. The majority (all but 4) of my contacts came via JT mode. Could have had more PSK contacts in the book but they would all have been dupes. Never saw the Algerian call though – go figure.

Sorry Milt,  but the guest at our club meeting wasn't talking about grounding of antennas, but grounding of everything else atop a mountain in multi-million dollar , multi-site installation for border patrol in Maine. He was the project engineer in charge from Motorola and our club President was one of the instructors from Motorola who taught around the country for Motorola.

There are many hams in my area who either work for Motorola or are retired/former .Motorola employees. Our current club President is a retired Motorola CPA, and the Treasurer is a current Motorola Engineer. 

I doubt that the ham who gave the program was kidding about grounding the site, not the antenna. Motorola is heavy into grounding sites. The site he was talking about is only accessible by helicopter.  So,  I  "Jerry-you-not " !

Those repeaters were probably VHF with dipole antennas.
It is about 125 miles to Seattle and I can get their repeaters with a HT.
Not really a fair comparison me thinks.
It's only about a mile direct to salt water. Just a long wire would do it.

Re: Guilty

There are some digital software programs (I use HRD DM780) that allow you to create multiple sets of macros. For example, you can create a set for normal PSK operations, you can create a set for DX contacts, DXpeditions, etc. You can create sets for various contests with the specific contest exchange information. Then you include in each set only the specific macros you might need for a specific situation. I include a  brief "station" macro in my PSK set only and I rarely use it. It does not even exist in the other sets so there is no chance of my triggering it by mistake and aggravating the folks who do not want to see it.

I did a dumb thing, I meant to hit my 'QTH' macro to let CU2AP know
my basic info, instead I hit a much more detailed macro I use when
folks want to know where my QTH is located, Usually in respect to Seattle.

Any way, I'm sure I slowed the rate of contacts down and I apologize.

That mountain top may not be a blessing.
I am 1000ft up the south side of a mountain which means no coverage to the north of me (europe).
I was also blessed with very rocky ground which means no RF ground.
I do have a spectacular view.
Pros and cons to every location.
