Re: Contest Season


I had picked up some fence wire and insulators as discussed prior today from TSC; total cost was just under $51.  This is to fix up the old beverage antenna that broke from last year.   The left-over wire we have can be used for a new beverage antenna since it's short.

Some of the items below--if you have something close will also work correct Juan?

Like a 3' ground rod is good, if you have a shortie you were just going to toss.

When Juan says RG-213, RG8 is also OK.  I have a 100' roll of RG8x which will work on 160m fine (to the closer antenna), but it's not enough for both antenna runs.

I forget whose antenna tuner we used last year but if you have something that's rated a little less we'd keep the power back.

Thanks & 73
