Re: 80 meter net

Thanks Chas
It was nice to have some signals that I could actually copy for a change!

My antenna helps the signal strength, at least when the bands are useable.
It’s a crossed dipole cut for 40 meters
At 65 feet.
It has 4 legs of appx 100 feet each.
Seems to tune and play well on 80 as well as 40 and 20 meters.

It's good to have a NCS like Johnny who for me is consistently the most readable and strongest 80m signal from the 4S heartland.

At the time of my QNI he was a solid 559, and I was surprised and pleased to receive the same report from him, given that in northern NJ I have about 70 minutes more darkness.  I was "Tail End Charlie" on the 4S 40m net and a thus a latecomer to 80m. Closer to me, K3NLT and K4EQ were 589/599..

When he closed the net ACØBQ was 579.
