    Hey, that's the same boat I started out in too. Though I was able to load up my 40-meter dipole on 15-meters because of the third harmonic thing.

    Give me some time and let me get a better antenna up(looking for a beam) and I would be glad to help. My G5RV just isn't good enough for me to be a NCS. I have to flip the amp on just to get out. [​IMG]

    Thats about right.

    1300Watts+G5RV=5Watts effective radiated power [​IMG]

    and this is the kind of emotions that explain why the americans are louder off the back of the beam than anyone else is off the front of the darned thing

    LOL, I think you are getting some nationality discrimination going here. If there were even close to the same amount of hams in Canada as there are in the U.S., there would definitely be the same problem with Canadian ops. Besides, it is known world-wide that the worst ham operator is a fellow countryman of yours. The only reason you get interference from the U.S. instead of Europe is because you have to hop over the ocean to get there.

    true enough but you gotta admit that your countrymen are enamoured with linear amplifiers.

    You're 100% right. A lot of the people I would talk to would ask me how long till I got an amp. There were a couple people that that's pretty much all they'd ask [​IMG] One of the guys who lives a few miles from here has a huge yagi and the legal limit power output, and I get the idea he doesn't lower his power output for anything. Personally I like the challenge of working weak stations, and trying to hone my operating skills so people can understand me when I'm operating QRP. But, whatever people enjoy. I do agree, there is an excess of rf power floating around the U.S.
