I started out on HF in 2011 running a Yaesu FT857 barefoot (usually 50W or less) into a G5RV-Jr wire antenna. Due to HOA restrictions, the G5RV is strung up inside the house. It amazes me that this modest, less-than-ideal setup still manages to allow contacts as far away as Australia and South Africa!

With a lot of patience (and a fair amount of luck) I even managed a confirmed contact with FT5ZM on Amsterdam Island.  And this from very nearly the exact Antipodes of FT5ZM!  It just goes to show that a high-powered Superstation is not required (though it must be nice) to contact even the farthest away of stations.

I am currently running a Yaesu FTdx3000 which is a really nice radio.  It's still connected, barefoot, to that same G5RV-Jr, though!
