Hello Paul & fellow AO-7 friends 

I will be improving my capability to reach out to some European dx.  I am adding a preamp on 2M and finally making my CP switching actually work.  I have heard 2E1EUB, RN1NW, UA1OEJ, a SM3???, and a very few others.  So far my only contact is with Mika-OH8MBN.  I would like to increase my satellite array to 40-50 feet.  However that is approaching divorce height.  My goal is to connect with Eric-PA1TNO in JO22Li, that distance will be 7837km.  I must remember, "if this were easy, everyone would be doing it".  I am considering taking some equipment and go to a local mountain top! (much cheaper than a divorce lawyer).
