Saturday 18 Oct 2008, 9 am local.
Over 1000 miles between Morgan City, LA and Manitowoc, WI
AE5JU used a FT-897D, AT-897 and a dipole he built, all at 100w
K9ZW used a TenTec Jupiter, Alpha 78, and Tennadyne T-8c up at 60 ft, running at 800w.
Solid two-way 59 QSO on 20m.
Yeah, this was good!
(Held this back as this week had Mole Day and for whatever reason site traffic looking for things 6.02×10^23 covers up any amateur radio posts each October. Thank you to the many thousands of Mole Day visitors who pushed my tiny blog up to the Top-40 of WordPress Blogs!!)
