at 2399 miles, ra9ky looks a fair distance, but only #33 in my best ever list......
I've been working on a slinky spring antenna for 80m. today I rigged it indoors with no balun. QRN was 2 s points higher than the long wire outside.... not a clue if this is a good thing! I'm not going to try mounting it up on the eves until I have a 1:1 balun to compare. the torroid is ordered...... More details to follow.
