New Ham, Cincinnati OH USA, seeks first QSO to test radio on 20m
I'm a very new ham (General Class), and acquired an old Ten Tec Omni C that receives well, hope to test transmit.
I've made a few hesitant calls and CQs but so far no replies; it's possible that the microphone needs adjustment or is wired incorrectly.
The only antenna that I have is a 20m dipole low to the ground for now (need to set up a ground system) and for testing this radio.
I can be available any time of day or night for the next day or so. I don't know anyone locally to ask for help with this and have no other receiver to use for testing.
phossils at gmail.com is my email address.
Thanks for any help or suggestions anyone may have.
