Hey Jerry-
Saw you work GB900PC and tried to catch him on his SK QRZ?.  Think I may have walked on your final!  Sorry if I did.  I never got him.

20m today

Jerry N9AVY
 

Usually just ignore RTTY signals on 14070, but I switched to RTTY and found a TA7 (Turkey)  calling “CQ”.  Tried to get through , but too many Europeans calling.  Get it’s not close enough to Turkey Day , huh ?

I’ve known Suke for quite a few years.  I’ll often work him on CW on 15M or 20M or some digimode or another.   We have over 65 QSOs in my log ...

Thank you Mike.  That is one awesome tower project!  Looks like the base alone is bigger than my whole lot.  If you want to play DX...well, that is definitely the way to go!  I wonder if he would explain to my HOA why that is exactly what I need...hi hi!

I had worked Suke on 10m and 40m, but this was our first on 20m.  I was really surprised when I saw him.  Everything else on the waterfall was just North America and most of it was in and out.

Hi Brian,

 

That might work, hi hi.  I had a RV friend that used a 23 ft marine antenna mounted on his ladder when he was in the RV park.  A lady stopped one day and wanted to know how he got through underpasses.  With a very straight face he told her that he just speed up when he saw the underpass and it worked out ok.  I don’t know if she believed him or not, but we had a good laugh after she left.

Hi Scotty,

 

The 160 antenna on the car makes it hard to pass thru underpasses, hi hi.  When portable next week won't have enough wire to run 160 so can't help you.

Hi Scotty,

 

Jerry is right, I can work some 160 from home with my 120 ft dipole feed with ladder line. 

 

We were in your area the end of October for an event in Everett.  Went to the Boeing plant tour which was really neat.

And I have almost none of those.  100W to a G5RV with one end 50ft up in a tree and another 10ft up on the edge of my fence.  In the 50Ft tree I have about 30ft hanging down the tree. I live near Boeing in Everett and have major Retail stores all around me. Noise level at best S8 and a lot of times S9+10

The trick to mobiling on 160m is to find a route which has no underpasses.  Good luck on that !   Even truckers find them hard to find.  Also , even with top hats 160m mobile whips are inefficient which makes for lots of signal loss.  It’s possible to work across US , but you need a good set of ears, good propagation and almost a low noise level. 

 

Probably need a 160m yagi at least 6 elements !  Hah-hah !

Sorry Tom,
The XYL just had Spinal surgery in Phoenix and I was busy.
The software link is the top TAB row and select, "ACDS^31 Beta"
You will download, ACDS_Setup file. Run it and it will install it.

Sorry for the delay on my part. I am back and all is well.

Re: 160m

Jerry N9AVY
 

Scotty:

 

We all are having RFI problems which will only get worse as more and more homes get filled with cheap electronic gadgets.   Many top band (160m) DXers move to very quiet locations with few neighbors. They install antenna designed for 160m and have the real estate to do that. Yes, they have deep pockets unlike most of us who are poorer than the proverbial “church mouse” in comparison. 

 

Most go with a vertical for transmitting and then use Beverage antennas for receiving or perhaps a 160m loop.

Antenna that are some distance from shack may be fed with hard line up to 1  5/8 inch diameter to keep losses to a minimum. (cost of hardline connectors is expensive and one could buy lots of  PL-259s for the price of 1 hardline connector).

 

This may be beyond the means of many hams. But we all try to do what we can.  Hope you manage to work DE soon !

 

Jerry  N9AVY

 

P.S.  My noise level on 20 m is S-9 right now and this morning 40m was just AC hum .

At the website, click on the link that says ACDS^31Beta.  It should work just fine in Win 7 - 10

I went to the linked page, read a good portion of the FAQ, checked the library page, the email group, etc.  Maybe I'm just having a bad day, but where exactly is the link to download PropNetPSK, PNP?  Reading the FAQ, it appears that the software is legacy in nature and may require some special configuration to work with Win 7 and/or Win 10.  But first I have to find it...
