so the crystals arrived in the post from the very generous Jerry G4GGZ,  and it was the work of a few moments to lift out the 11m and 15m crystals and replaced them with two of the four that arrived.  the switch was a dawdle and took less time than opening up the rig.  the crystals are a hair off what they should be so I need to be careful not to drift out of the band, but I had 2 QSOs on 17m within a few minutes of tuning up the rig.

OK1KWCzech Rep

the long wire tuned up on 17 very easily with virtually no QRN and was a good 2 s-points louder than the G5RV jr, so my plans to possibly loose the long wire and put up a windom may be put on hold.

no contacts on 12 yet as it was a bit flat.  no doubt as the summer comes in the higher bands will open and there will be the chance to utilise the band a bit more.

so, QSOs since Wednesday,,,,
