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).
