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 couple simple methods, height tunning + feeder efficiency <<<<<<<<
Method one:- Use 7/8 or thicker 'corrugated coax' feedline for best possible base station performance, use 5/8"~7/8 inch 'low' loss flexable coax jumpers inside the Shack with 'minimum 'inlne' accessories'. In effect, now your Transceiver will be at the Antenna's terminals !!!!
Method two:- 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 this receive peak with your TX signal via 'w.w.w.remote SDR dot org'. Find a suitable remote SDR receiver, tune it to your transmitters frequency & note all the positive variance readings as you are raising and lowering your Antenna while transmitting. Its that easy. Note the receive and transmitt variances should be equal. This suggested method is your easy cross referenc test and checks the facts that you have established are true & correct. HFTA computer simulation offers helpful broad band 'indicative only' height ranges while this additional manual method is exacting on 'sweet spot extraction' and 'null dampening' over the height range tested. Once established and set up correctly, will offer you terrific DX results
Positive variances & increased feed line efficiency can net you very large gain. I use this method here. For results on what others have said about my signal type in 'ZL2JBR on U Tube' and see for yourself.
Appreciate the DX contact with you. Emails most welcome. SWL's included. Please mark my log book above if we have just had a contact. many thanks.
