Here I am, KK6QMS! I could not figure out how to add my call to my orig QRZ account. You nailed it- Kilo Kilo Six Quebec Mike Sierrathought of toilet paper too I get it! No bueno. Thanks for all the info, I will likely just buy some ladder line to work with. So my home made 2m/70cm dipole, crummy Belden 9275 coax, and Baofeng UV-5R made it full quieting to a repeater somewhere out here. Still trying to get the exact location but at least 15+ miles away.
