SIX METERS OPEN

Six meters is wide open here , both short and long . A good day for a "wet noodle" antenna . Some hard to get grids and states very loud and active right now . Put whatever you have on 6 , tune around a little and HAVE A GREAT TIME !!

Thanx Ray,

I think Walter knows the guy who posted that study. Interesting to see how
great it is at 75 wpm isnt it. I use mine a lot, but can't even carry on a
conversation with myself at 15 wpm. So you're still way ahead of me.

Thank for the post.

13 Colonies QRP style

flsaas
 

The 4th of July weekend 13 Colonies sure is a fun event! After being off the air for a month while I relocated my shack, I hooked up my inverted vee Saturday morning and discovered that the 13 Colonies event was going on.

I managed to work all 13 plus the bonus station relatively easy by the afternoon with my Softrock SDR/Mobo 4.3 to a 50w amp so I decided to try it QRP - without the 50w amp.

Thank goodness I managed to work 11 of the colony stations prior to the solar flare on Sunday! It took me most of the day to work the last two for a QRP clean sweep.

BTW - if you ask, in the past the event coordinator will put a QRP sticker on your 13 Colonies certificate.

Re: Portable Antenna Survey

Joseph Moore <joekf0xv@...>
 

Thanks to all who replied to the Survey. I got some great ideas.

Looking forward to trying some of your Antennas soon.

I am expiermenting with a 9:1 unun and 60 foot wire now

(no counterpoise) and 25 feet of coax. I have read (On the Web)

Pros and cons, some like it others call it a dummy load.

Another was the 24 ga Speaker wire dipole. 22 feet each leg

And 28 foot feed line. I put a 1:1 balun at the feed point and then

25 foot of coax.

Thanks again to all

Hello,

I had limited time, but worked a dozen or so stations, mostly in the 8-th and 9-th call areas with a 2 & 3 thrown in there & heard two
VE3's, all on CW.

73,

Sam Neal  N5AF

=============================================


Perhaps I will work on my 6 meter antennas this weekend to work on VUCC
and to finish up WAS on 6 . Two of the 4 remaining states that I need
are Arkansas and Nebraska !! Go figure , the close in ones :) Have had
Hawaii and Alaska in the log for several years . ( Both worked with 10
watts into a 5 element Cushcraft at 15 feet !! )

Perhaps if I can get some decent antennas operating again , someone on
this group can run a schedule with me for NE and AR .

If you have a rig that covers 6 meters , fire it up on whatever antenna
will load up for you on 6 and join the fun on the "Magic Band." You just
might get hooked and have a new antenna project to keep you busy .

Here are the first two FOXii up for skinning... in the Summer Season of FOXHUNTs
This very next Thursday (local),  starting promptly at 0100z (Fri - GMT) or 7 pm MDT, +/- 10KHz from 14.060,
these two skilled, sly, swift foxii, will be emerging from their dens, and it will be up to you to find and grab
a pelt (qso) from each of them. There will be only two, and the following week a different two, continueing for
the entire summer season. 10 weeks, each Thursday. So dust off that qrp gear, oil up them keys, and lets get to it.
Take a look to the sky, to the last thing your shot will touch, until it smacks a FOXii, hopefully deadon. We have only
FIVE DAYS LEFT....
  Whew, it has been a long dry summer, my FOX withdrawl was getting unmanageable... how about you?
See you in the pack of hounds... and good luck to all and to all a good hunt.

Have a great season,

Re: Wed Nit CW Nets

w2sh@...
 

It looks as if I was the DX-mostest with my 40 m QNI, made difficult by the heavy SSB QRM plus a goodly dose of QRN.  Still, it should be stressed that in NJ I have about an hour's worth of darkness working in my favor compared to most of you.

For the first time in a long while  I was able to hear bits and pieces of the beginning of the 80m net, but with insufficient readability to warrant a QNI attempt. 

Interestingly, 80m was in great shape on Tuesday night with the weekly Michigan QRP Net (9:00 ET on 3.535 mHz) recording seven QNIs, including mine.  All but one sig were R5 here.
