on 10/2/93, early in the a.m. (that's saturday), i started my quest
for distances on 40 meter with 0.95W out.

qsos in order with QTH worked were:

1. Dorchester, NJ
2. Spokane, WA
3. Omaha, NE
4. Angleton, TX (south of Houston)
5. Lenexa, KS
6. Browing, IL
7. Salado, TX

so, the first two were over 1,000 miles/watt. the rig works good.
monday nite will try with the NorCal 40 and see how it does.

the NN1G receiver on 40 works very well. couple of things that
i think it needs. AGC and RIT. i worked some of the qsos with
tone under 200 cycles and that unto itself is a feat that i don't
recommend to anyone. :-) i didn't want to touch the dial for
fear of starting a walk down the band during the qso everytime
we switched sides.

above qsos started at 1104Z. i called CQ for the first three
qsos and the last three. so the rig was getting out. RST
reports from 459 to 589.

see you on the air,
