Hello Mike, Yep, worked the LZ1, EU7, lots of G's and Europe in general
with the Alinco DX-70t at 5 watts and an 80 mtr dipole at 30 feet. Most
contacts have been stable and RST's around 459 (even G2QT was 559here @ 3W).
Judging from all the e-mail and usenet traffic, there is a big difference
into Eurpoe from Delaware and north versus mid 4-land and south. Take off
angle and refraction angles make it an easy haul during this point in the
sunspot cycle from here.

    If I was further south, I'd probably opt for verticals with a low take
off angle or a hanging delta loop to work Europe. From here on 20M, my loop
and dipole are not much different into western Euro, but the loop has a big
advantage into eastern Euro and Russia.....the take off angle thing again.

72, Jim K3QIO Wilmington Delaware (look at the TMPS logs. Del. is seen
fewer times than Hawaii and Alaska :)
