Got mine yesterday, which includes a 160M contact on my 80 M inverted V! I remember that qso, as they had a huge signal that day on 160 M!


Their signal on 160m was killer every day they were on. I want to know what they used for a 160m TX antenna.

This page describes their antennas--they were using a tall vertical on 160. (27meters high)

Got their card yesterday for 7 band fills, SSB, and Digi.   Grin

It was more than just that - I have worked many California 1.5kW stations on 160M using tall antennas. They can put a good solid signal to me in Winter. And TX5K was like 5 or 6 S-units louder than any of them have ever been. TX5K were just as loud as a typical North Carolina or New England station using 1.5kW and a tall antenna, which is, "very loud".

I suspect it had to do with all that saltwater :-)

HK0NA was also putting out a real good signal on 160M, but it was just "comparable" to a California legal limit station with a good antenna.

And now I have the card too! Thanks to everyone who helped put together TX5K!

Still a no go for me. But I didn't do OQRS until about a week or so ago. I am patient, I am not close enough to 250 to keep me up at night... Yet.

Anyone have any idea when they will do LOTW,

My card arrived the day after I did a online application to DXCC and sent my cards for checking.

I don't want to have to pay another $12.50 for a few QSO's to be added to my total.

This was my number 300  Grin
