Ham with swiss on Rye for the WIN!!!
I heard you on Thanksgiving, couldn't reply as others jumped in but as I recall your audio was clear and your signal was strong here in Wyoming...
Same here, return is in the mail.
Nice card Dave, glad to be part of your TS-820 project.
I was part of Dave's "Eico 753 WAS" project. He sent me a QSL card with a picture of an Eico 753 on it.
The card drifted across the room. Only kidding, the contact was fine and I was using a 41 year-old TR-7 while he used a 50 year-old 753. So we had a 90+ year old gear contact.
You will shortly see one with a TS-820S on it.... it should stay put quite nicely. Your 753 QSL card was last seen somewhere over New Hampshire, at about 9800 feet and still rising, and moving East
My humble card is filled out and in the SASE.
And I will look forward to receiving it as I slowly work through yet another "Nostalgic Worked All States" project with yet another great old rig
Thanks for that, it helps me think this antenna question through. You heard me on 40, right?
I think I'm seeing why one of my little tuners got snap happy on a "resonant" band multiple now.
Darn, I could use WY confirmed on 40 & 20. Well, not that I'm chasing anything award wise. Next time around then.
Hi Eric - I would be happy to try on 40m most any evening as well.
And ya know - you don't need to "chase any awards" to still find fun in "working all 50 states" - as I'm sure you're aware, I do that all the time - whenever I restore another old rig.
But let me know - I'll be in the shack in an hour and happy to try on 40.
We can use this thread to "text" and stay in sync while trying if you like
