Everyone there is more than glad to help you out. Including myself.
This winter I plan on hitting the low bands really hard. To push my numbers up.
I also belong to several clubs
6 meters World Wide
3905 Century Club.Master #36 have way too many awards with that club to even put on here.
Station set up is very modest
ICOM 718 and 7000 and a Yaesu 857D
Main rig right now is the 857D my 7000 is down maybe due to the PA board went South on me.
K4KIO Hex Beam at 15 feet for now 20-10 with 6 meter add on.
Home brew 5 element yagi for 6 meters at 67 feet plus or minus a foot or 3
Dipoles for 160 40 and 80 and for listening for now I have a Beverage out at about 900 feet.
I do QSL VIA LoTW EQSL(AG) 3905CCN and OMISS. Also via ARRL. SASE is not required for Directs US stations and neither are Green stamps from DX.
