40m dipole up finally

After the small pile up of JA's got their Q's on 20m SSB and PSK31 this morning, at 930am local time or 2330 UTC I did the game of "let's get the 40m dipole up" again.

In blazing sun and ridiculous humidity I was able to get it up at a lower height but it's in the clear with a good SWR and a LOT LOT LOT less noise than the vertical. So tonight I'll try for North America on SSB, RTTY and PSK31 in the 0900-1300 UTC period.

  1. Really surprised no copy 7094 1100z.

    I guess hope for our short 20m opening?
    Your schedule after 1300z. I show prop 1530-1630z possible.

    I was here from 0900z on and looks like you had a good 15m EU opening at least.
