Just a moment to post a personal best.  In spite of my HOA stealth random wire antenna (65ft), and home made 9:1 unun, I manged during the same afternoon to make contacts in Japan, Germany, and the Canary Islands.

I needed an obscene 50W to get the contact, but it still worked.

Something was right with the signals today. 🙂

Thanks,

Ed L. (KE0TSD)

Yah... About QSL cards.  What do most people do about those?  Kinkos?  Something else?
