Welcome to NEW ZEALAND. Population 4,500000
Located in the Southern Pacific Ocean. Six pocket sized cities house 90 percent of the population over two large islands. If you're looking for a recreational break then Zealand is a serious contender for this. You can even hire a 'motorized camper' and do your own thing in our clean green country. Summer comes in late January, ideal time to visit. Don't forget, we drive on the left side & there's no tipping.
>>>>>>>> WANT MORE GAIN ???? HERE'S a method using height tunning & feeder efficiency <<<<<<<<
Using 7/8 or thicker corrugated coax is vital for best possible base station performance, as well as using 5/8"~7/8 inch low loss coax jumpers inside the Shack and 'minimum inlne accessories'. In effect now your Transceiver will be at the Antenna's terminals .
Next, build a rig that can raise & lower you Antennas height. Then Peak a DX signal's direction, then adjust the Array's Height while looking for Positive signal variances on your S meter. In doing so, you may find several Peaks & Nulls. Once a peak is found, simply cross reference it via your TX signal via 'w.w.w.remote SDR dot org'. Find a suitable receiver tune it to your transmitters frequency & note all the positive variance readings as you find them. Its that easy. HFTA computer simulation offers helpful broad band indicative height ranges only but will be miles out on your exact sweet spot height. This method offers exact sweet spot extraction and allows you to remove all null dampening over the height range tested for terrific DX results.
Positive variances due to increased feed line efficiency, sweetspot tuning and removal of null dampering can Net you a easy 20 Db on both Receive & Transmit. I use this method here. For results. check ZL2JBR on U Tube. what oters have said on blog & video.
Appeciate the DX contact with you. Emails most welcome. Please mark my log book above. many thanks.
