Log Book Update

The highlight of the past month is 80m DX.   I built the 80m vertical to get to Europe and be able to work DX during the solar minimum.   I have been very pleased with how this antenna performs and would like to increase my transmit power 6-9db.   The signal reports have been very favorable  however this band has allot of noise even when its quiet.    This week working evenings I have been operating when I get home between 00:30 and 03:00 est.  Good propagation exists towards Europe and most of the Eastern North America operators have gone to bed ... less competition.     And of course this is a time when Europe is waking up and the " Grey Line " opportunity sweeps across the continent .
