Antenna Farm

Jerry N9AVY
 

Ventured outside to take a lookiesee at antenna farm - sad .   The tribander & WARC dipoles have a decidedly unhealthy droop from last night's ice storm.   The 80/40m sloper has its coil  full of ice and the 80m portion over the roof is encased in ice & snow.  Used to have about 6 inches clearance above roof but 8-10 inches of snowfall this week messed that up. 

No way am I going up on the roof to fix it. This hobby is not worth risking my life; same goes for tower.  After fixing the "droop" in sloper a couple weeks ago, it's back to having coil hanging about 5-6 feet off the lawn which is good for chopping off heads while mowing lawn. 

Just got in from cleaning off ice all over van - yuck !   I'm starting to not like Winter.  Granddaughter wants me to move to Phoenix and live with her - bah on that idea !  Actually, I think house is in Gilberts.  AZ is not my cup of tea.

Spring is just around the corner, right ?   What about global warming ???   It should be warmer.

Strange conditions here this evening. Lots of signals in waterfall on 40m, but seemed like very few could hear me. 

Then all at once made 6-7 contacts with AZ, WA, CA. Band has gone here  and only saw KC3FL on 80. Now nothing but noise.

Steve -

Never seen anything like that. I get some QRM from TVs nearby, but it tends to be tones, not weird scattered stuff.

This is what I am dealing with since about 10 minutes before contest. This is on the End Fed. I switched to my east west dipole and it is slightly better but still S9. Transformer? Grow Lights? It is all across the band.

20 mins before the start my radio suddenly started showing high SWR on 40m

Dennis,
PODXS1RTTY ought to do it. Set up for Digital Mode. You will need your N1MM Digital interface set up for FLDIGI. BTW, the FLDIGI interface in N1MM is also very good for RTTY contests.

N1MM does not appear to have a contest set up for the PSKFest on January 3rd.



Does someone have a contest file for N1MM?  I am new to HAM Radio and have never used N1MM so I am struggling to set it up for the contest.

Have to plead a case of CRS.  Misread the date and was calling contest CQ earlier.  Will try again during the official event hours.
