Indeed and I also want to thank Adam for the antenna he created for me!  I didn’t make a video, but I did get it up in the backyard last weekend on my bigger sotabeam pole and gave it a quick test.  I know I have a lot of RFI in my neighborhood but I clearly heard N1CLC on 20m and tried to reply, but the pileup was pretty deep.  I need to get a power meter and see what my little HB1B is putting out but the antenna seemed to work well.  I tried a few repeated TX to see if I could be heard on WSPR but nothing, again likely due to my location.  Adam’s creation for me was a souped up end fed that is unbelievably light.  I should be able to sprint up the hills with this…maybe.

 

Thanks again for running an awesome event and group.  Looking forward to tonight’s meeting!  See you there!
