    It depends on the antenna and on the attic ;)

    I was struggling with the height and orientation of my outdoor antenna to reach South America (other DX areas went reasonably well). Finally a makeshift simple 15m half-wave dipole in the attic helped me to finally get the 6th continent to my log. CW, 20W. This happened some months ago, so in this Solar Cycle period.

    I still use a short attic Windom when I have to lower the outdoor loop because strong wind. There is a difference, but this is not so bad, absolutely usable.

    Sooo true! :D

    I have not seen this chart yet, thx!

    (Actually I really abandoned it after mission had been completed. I mean the dipole.)

    I did it by myself just to reply your post. :p

    To be honest, in fact I summed up my posts. :confused::D

    Today I received a recently purchased (marked as non worked) radio Blaupunkt Riviera 94800 from a flea market for restoration. Terribly dirty (but almost laundered), missed some parts and someone was digging it with crooked hands. Today I replaced part of the capacitors and restored part of the power supply wiring according to the scheme, and it started working on VHF. Silence on other bands. It is a pity that the original speaker is open. I will try to fix it too. IMG_20210826_151155.jpg IMG_20210826_151208.jpg

    That's all I found about it at all. I download the scheme 3 sheets a day (

    Listening for G3EDM on 7.040 and thereabouts, calling on 7.039.

    Nope, didn't hear him. Thought the rig went flat, but the RBN heard me try on 7.007, so there's that. Wonder why it didn't hear me on 7.039?

    Why does it seem the sunspot numbers always go up when I'm on the night side of the disc, then retreat when I'm facing the sun? :mad:
