CY9C, has a good signal at 18.120 in STX at this moment.

Here's a special one for me... XX9LT via LOTW for a JT65 QSO... this is my DXCC entity # 200 on digital modes. I started with RTTY just over a year and a half ago, then ventured into PSK and JT modes. I mostly only call stations when they are a new country for me. In fact, so far I've only made exactly 300 QSOs on digital modes. That's a QSO and a half per entity, LOL  Grin Grin Grin

I stated this was a problem a couple months ago....   Sourcing transistors.

The dies to make 2879s are in the bottom of the ocean.

DEI made them for a custom run,  but they where NOT the same.

From the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, 8/19/2016:

RUTHTON, Minn. — The pilot of a crop-dusting plane died Friday in southwestern Minnesota when his aircraft struck a radio tower’s guy line and crashed into a soybean field.

James “Jim” Arnt, the owner of Arnt Aerial Spraying of Worthington, was identified as the victim of the crash in rural Pipestone.

A relatively tall radio tower almost certainly already painted and lit. Unfortunately, it appears painting didn't help this pilot. Poor guy...

My presentation went great.  About 20 people attended and several wanted a copy of the presentation to take back to their clubs.

There is some wiggle room. when somebody asks you to do something you can ask them to make it worth your while. Attach a number indicating what you want to be paid for running the other party's errands and see if they take you up on it, no?

As I now have pseudo 160m capabilities.
I'm really looking forward to trying to get them on 160m
I assume pseudo means only a full sized 2 element array versus 8 elements?

My lame vertical with meager radials is ultra psuedo  Grin Grin Grin Grin
So does my inverted L.


LOL you guys. Yeah, I had to settle for a full sized rotatable 2 element array  Grin Grin Grin   .... I wish

Nah it's just my main HF antenna, a 102 foot dipole fed with 600 ohm ladder line (that's all I can squeeze in) to a homebrew tuner. The dipole is up about 60ish feet. No idea how efficient or inneficient it is. Since my matchbox won't go down to 160 and I didn't feel like modifying it I built the 160 tuner.

The antenna is nowhere near optimal length or design. It's what I have to work with for now. A few other projects in the works to try.

Here is the tuner (sitting on top of my KW matchbox)(don't mind the mess on my desk..):

Excellent suggestion; perhaps I was "over-thinking".  Smiley

Ensure that coupling is set to DC.

Just got them on 12 meters CW. Been trying since they first started their efforts on 12. This was by far the most difficult band to hear them on. I am now done. Between CY9M, CY9S, CY9SS, and now CY9C I have all that my antenna can do. No 80 or 160 here.
