I've order several and had no issues with the boards received.

I used one for a project I did on Caller ID, and getting ready to play
with another to decode WX warningdata from a VHF receiver. (S.A.M.E.)

Hey Charles,

I'm beginning to believe that I could have done better by switching between my vertical and my NVIS dipole.
The SteppIR 33 is a pure vertical and I have a lot of radials in the ground; hence it has a low angle of launch
and very little energy vertically or even at an angle of say 85%, which would cover Lebo, KS, etc from Lawrence,
KS. The NVIS dipole, on the other hand delivers much less for DX angles, like to your location in NJ.

Think I'll look at using some sort of combiner on RX; that is, one could bring in the coax from both vertical
and NVIS dipole and listen to each simultaneously, or with left and right ear?

The NVIS should have less noise since it does not "hear" static from distant stations. I'll email those details to
you separately.

Between 0030Z and 0130Z WØXI was consistently RST 559/569, but my
various attempts to achieve a QSO were unsuccessful in that all I
could elicit were di-di-dum-dum-di-dis and SRIs.

Also heard were AA5CO, K5EST and AK4VL, all with decent readability,
but no QSOs resulted.

It should be noted that my NJ QTH enjoyed about 80 minutes more
darkness than WØXI, and that enhanced my reception considerably.

My only QSO was at 0133Z with KB4QQJ, he being only five degrees of
longitude to my west.

I think we'll pull out of Iola somewhere around 7am Saturday morning, which should put us there somewhere around 9 to 9:30.� Robin's definately not a morning person at all, otherwise I'd probably leave earlier on Saturday!
