G'day Scott and the group,
Thanks for your message earlier today which was sitting on my screen
when I came in this evening.
I decided to put my HF station on 40 yesterday and today (Wednesday and
Thursday) to see if I could receive your 40 metre signals and vice versa.
Your sigs have been good here during the times I have had the station on
air. It took a while to zero in on your signal but in the end I wound
up using 7.036.5 on the TS-50 with the aged MFJ-1278. The antenna is
an inverted V at 45 feet AGL. Alas the preferred one closest to the
shack is affected by a strong warble from my computer monitor right on
that frequency. The alternative 40 metre inverted V is higher and
further from the shack and should give better results. I'll try this
Rob (ZL3RX) appears only around very late afternoon - almost on dusk.
No-one else has been heard from here so far.
I'll put the station on 40 again as I get the opportunity for a few more
