    Hi,

    I'm a newbie and need help :)I'm wanting to test my configuration more. So far I have only made 3 successful QSO, all the way to UT.

    I can be heard all the way down to Southern California. I don't seem to be able to make it past Rocky Mountains though.

    However my CQs doesn't get answered, and my answering CQs seems ignored.

    I'd like to eliminate my configuration as the prime suspect.

    I'm logging QSOs manually at QRZ for now, have just applied for LoTW this week.

    We can coordinate the QSO via Skype, or phone (I'll call).

    If you can help please email me at: cmsamsi at hotmail dot com

    Thank you, Caesar.

    Caesar,

    If you'd like to test your configuration to the East Coast (New Jersey), let me know and I'd be happy to work out a sked with you. I've done this with others and we typically use cell phones, texting or google hangouts.

    If you are looking specifically west coast I understand.

    I would love it! We'll see how much power is needed to reach that far.

    Thank you, Caesar.

    This sked concluded with a QSO real time live with the new configuration.

    Thank you Mark.

    Hi Gary,

    My apologies for late reply, had quite a few things not so fun things come up.

    Yes, I would love to run the test again.
