04/10/2010 0300z I have made 400+ QSO’s but the bands are not great. I’m using my IC-7000. There is a really high SWR on the 80/160m ant but I have not got my MFJ this time to see where it is resonant. I will root out the big ATU from the cupboard and see if that does any good. The way the linear is set up you have to press the footswitch on every mode even CW and RTTY which is a pain so am going to see if I can sort that out.
All bands are totally dead at the moment (1045am LT). Will adjourn to Wim’s XU7TZG shortly for a beer I think.
07/01/2010 1500z John reports about 2,500 QSO’s log up to now.
