Well, this morning got the FT101B attached to a 5/8 silver rod CB antenna and tried my first attempt at 10m DX.
the band was fairly quiet with a few stations coming in, in particular UT7ZZ in Ukraine who was risking breaking my S meter needle all morning!
so, contacts made to:
I'm a happy DX camper!!
in the post this morning came a G5RV jr antenna and a 20m length of coax. now I need a roll of Para cord to get it up in the air..... not sure how I'll rig it, but it'll be going up soon!!
