    Well after 3 days of operations, they had to leave beecuse the Navy ship they were with didnt like the storm that was headed their way. The pileups were tremendous but was still able to work them on 20,30,40 CW. The poor tubes in the amp sure got a workout since it took over 3 hours to work them on 40M /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Yea...only a few on this site would have any clue on this.
    Its Ham Radio stuff. Basically long range (DX) communications with as many different countries in the world as possible. Guess you could say its like CB on Steroids since we can run 1500 watts into Big antennas /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Congrats /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    I gave up on the 20 SSB and even tried for several hours on RTTY but no luck. Very suprised I got them on 30 due to the power limit and the rotatable dipole at 35' /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    I wish they would get the logs posted to verify.
    At least they have a stateside manager.

    Next biggie is the 3Y0X (Peter I) in January /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Dont know if you visit this site, but its a good one for current and upcoming events
