It is! I just got mine and it was certainly worth the wait. 73
I just received mine today, and they are great looking. Just wish I could have gotten the Great Brit. station.
Many Thanks to all those involved for putting on this great event.
Came here to see if people are getting theirs.
Glad to see peoples are still rolling in.
I sent my sheet and money July 10th or so.
Still waiting for mine! Definitely taking longer this year, but I get it.
Reading old threads, but good comments, like nuggets.
I would guess I was the K2B that you contacted.
Your comments resonated with me.
I, like you, use low power and sometimes feel I am competing with many kilowatt stations.
But it isn't necessarily so, as I've discovered.
And even if it is so, I take that as a challenge. You've got your kilowatt, I've got 100 watts and a wire, strung over a tree limb.
In the Virginia QSO party last month, I ran a pile-up for almost 90 minutes from one location, with just this set up, on battery. (It's not always like that, no.)
But that's the satisfaction of designing, building and installing (as high as possible) a wire antenna, in this case, in the field.
I would love to schedule a QSO to discuss antennas. That's where it's at, not amps.
What exactly is an "amplifier," anyway? My amps are Virginia Pines.
Sorry, my post was supposed to be addressed to your post.
