JULY 20,2009

Changed antenna tuner from a Elecraft T-1 to a MFJ-971. Need to free the T-1 and I hope this works. Need to drop the vee, add wire and retune it, this gives me more priority to get on this. 4 hits on DX Summit but no new states. Can not get a good output reading, anywhere from 400mw to 700mw, your guess is as good as mine.

10 July 09

Time for a update. I looked at DX Summit and my lil beacon has been reported by 25 stations. Now I've been heard in 10 states!! I even got a report from a old ham buddy WB0WQS Kelly who use to live here here, he is now in Mo. I'm impressed with this beast.
