ARRL DX ‘test

February 20, 2011

I had a pretty good time making QSO’s during the ARRL CW DX contest.  They might not be acceptable for the MBARC QRP contest because the brief exchange does not include the name and QTH.  I put them in the log anyway, so there.  I thought I did FB on 40 meters with 30 Q’s, most of them above 1000 miles/watt.  Today I was working on 15 meters and found that my beam seemed out of alignment so I went out to correct the problem (it was off by about 110 deg ).  I discovered that my G5RV ladder line was wound twice around one of my V/UHF antennas.  I may have to twist it back on there next year.
