VK3IOSO HP ALLGreat low band conditions, especially 40 and 80. I was very lucky my QRN was very low, as today, one day after the contest, it is terrible. I look forward for the next 4 or 5 years, when I expect the low bands to be even better. Thank all, for the contacts
VK3MISO LP 40MAnother enjoyable weekend of radio contesting! Running low power on 40M from a noisy quarter acre urban block in Melbourne city proved to be a good challenge. It was difficult to break the pileups or hold a run frequency for any length of time with low power. I ended up spending the majority of the time search and pouncing. Conditions seemed OK but not brilliant. Fortunately there was minimal noise from lightning which can often make copy on the low bands difficult at this time of year. Radio - Flex-6300 80W Antenna - Inverted vee dipole with the centre about 20m AGL over our 2 storey house. I also have a 16m tall vertical antenna with elevated radials but this was not used as I found signals were generally stronger, along with less man-made noise, on the dipole
