I am a U.S. County Hunter (since 1987) and I need yet a few counties from California (to 20m CW Band) and they are; Alameda, Merced, San Benito and Sierra + one from IDAHO (Teton).
Do you have or your friend HF moble station with whom I can try to 20m CW sked? I am grateful for all the good tips!
The best time is early morning here (local time) at 0300-0330 UTC or abt. at 1600-1700 UTC? I worked just 27.5.2014 fixed station from Sierra County at 1635 UTC.
Thanks any news and see you soon on the air!

QRV now (recent activity)?
The first 5/8 Gain Dipole in use on 30m band in the world! I have just built a new wire antenna for 30m which is based on the Gain-Master design (it is not a copy, it is only based on the same technical idea). The antenna is a test version for which I have got design help from Marko OH5TM. It hangs down from a guy wire which is attached between my tower and a tree. I will add more information on this page when I have pictures and additional material ready.
