VE3KQN - VE3MO
Since 2013/11/30 to date, I have been using a 28 inch diameter, home brew magnetic loop antenna, indoors, on 80m thru 10m with my QRP radios - Wilderness Radio Sierra or Youkits HB1B with an average output of 2 to 3 watts..
My outdoor antenna came down in the Ice storm of December 2013 and I have no plans to put it back up again for a while as I am enjoying the QRP challenge with the loop. Thanks to all who have taken the time to pull my signals off the "noise floor".
Updated: June 12, 2014 @ 01:47 z - using the mag loop only, 80m thru 10m:
Operational Days: 76
Contacts - 461
U.S. states worked - 46 (still require: Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas and South Carolina).
Cdn provinces and/or territories worked - 10
Entities worked - 51
First licenced in 1978.
Obtained my "Advanced Amateur Licence" in 1981 (before grandfathering).
I do all QRP HF CW operations, both home and as a field operational station - i.e. wilderness/portable etc.
I also do a lot of operating from the Haliburton Highlands in Ontario (FN05).
I enjoy the contests, especially the ones that endorse QRP.
(On Dec. 21, 2009 I secured the callsign VE3MO.)
2013/12/01 - just built a 28 inch dia. magnetic loop which covers 80m thru 10m and is mounted on a camera tripod.
It is intended as a portable / indoor antenna so if I have the good fortune to have a QSO with you and identify my
antenna as a "mag loop", that's what the parameters are.
I DO NOT have outgoing QSL service.
