    Hello Rob. The 350 can easily do 200 watts out with good 6HF5's. Tnx Greg.

    I do not have personal experiences with this kind of antenna on HF, but the literature mentions it as a very effective antenna for 10 meter and even on the 20 and 15 meter bands. It had enough time to prove, the first publication of it was issued exactly 60 years ago :)

    New ham here. Got my license on 4-20, made my first contacts and interacted with the Bella Vista Radio Club last night with my HT. It helps being close to the repeater. New radio arrives today, picked up an Icom mobile with a mobile antenna as well as a power supply. Now I need to figure out how to log contacts on QRZ.

    I didn't do anything ham related today but I might have lost a free G90 I was getting :( :(:oops:

    Moved the 6m/10m antenna to a semi-permanent location, at least for this ES season:


    Now listening to a 7-land station calling CQ...

    Speaking of 10 meters, I put up a dipole for it the other day on the same coax as my magloop. I haven't been able to get the SWR below ~2 yet on 10 meters, likely because it's coupling with the metal mast and the loop itself. I bought a balun from HRO and will try moving the center of the dipole a few inches away from the loop in the next few days to see if that helps.

    Preparations are underway for the 7QP effort this year. No county line ops this time, just ORCOL.

    I wish we had that activity over here too (as it is announced as a global event). I asked on a local ham forum, and no one had a glue about it - so sad...

    Would be good to have some buzz in this band as well. HF is easier, half of the world can be accessed, but VHF/UHF is mainly a local story.
