I'm not getting evicted Rob. Either the antennas get taken down today or I must move. I have chosen to move. The beach front place wont be available for 3 more weeks. Have a person here at work who has a lead on a place..........Whole thing is too much drama for me.

  

OK, I fully understand, I know what it is like to be abroad and not want to get into too much Drama.  I am not so sure you will survive those 3 weeks Hi Hi.  If your hands and face start twitching I suggest you get out some wire and and make a mini G5RV Grin.

Who are the people that use this?!

"HamSphere simulates a real Ionosphere with radio wave propagation, fading and distortion. Signals are bounced off a virtual Ionosphere and reflected to distant parts of the world."

They even have DXpeditions and probably awards.  Shocked

I had some indoor dipoles while in graduate school, and did ok with them.  It is a worth a shot.  I am sure KH0/ adds 10 db to any signal.

Ironically, Hamsphere actually takes more skill that FT8 does.  Let that statement sink in a bit.

There are probably 1000 video games more interesting than Hamsphere if the desire is to play a video game.  If you want to DX, DX...seriously.

I can think of those unable/unwilling to get a ham ticket, and until recently, those with very difficult station logistics. FT8 helped 'relieve' some of the latter.

One could also say that Hamsphere is the 'poor ham's' remote station. Looks nicer than Echolink.

If it raises awareness about amateur radio, great. If not, there is no harm done. It only costs 30 Euros per year, and has users from 274, so called, DXCC countries.

It does seem to attract some hams though, if their real time activity page is for real.

P.S. Sorry for the duplicate posts, not sure what happened there.

 Moved into a new temporary place tonight roughly 200 feet from the ocean. First order of business was setting up the 20 meter phased arrays. Made a quick 78 QSOs in WPX CW before band died at 11 PM local time. Signals from North America & Europe appear to be stronger than from the last QTH. Will know more in the morning when 20M opens back up. The 80-6 meter antennas should be all setup by Monday.

 I still have the previous apartment for 3 more weeks. It's fully furnished & sitting vacant. If anyone wants a free place to stay for 3 weeks in KH0 land right now speak up. I'm 100% serious............Unfortunately you will have to leave your HF antennas at home.  Smiley

That is great news Tom.  I love the fact that you got an even better QTH than the last one.  I look forward to hearing from you on the Radio.

I was about to head for the airport when I read this last sentence.

Thanks, Tom. Maybe next time. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

When the landlord said "Either Your Antennas Go or You Go", did he mean if you go the antennas may stay? If yes, the antennas could be used for a remote QTH... as long as you go  Grin Grin Grin

Technically correct, the best kind of correct.
