I've set it up inside but I just can't get it to tune well because of the surroundings inside of the house. I've never even tried to make a contact in the house because I won't key up with the sub-par SWR. My long contacts have been on 20m. I had YV5ENI in Venezuela on the hook one morning on 20m. He's 2200 miles from me! He had my call but kept messing up one letter. Obviously not a QSL but I was happy that he kept hearing me. After about 5 exchanges he gave up and moved on. He's a good one to listen for on the weekend mornings, typically around 14.240 +/- a little. That dude just likes making contacts, never more than just exchanging call signs. He might be on a little early for you being that you are on pst time. I've just started working FT8 and haven't setup the loop since working FT8. Once some snow melts here I'll be back outside with it and I'll give it a try on digital.
