Hi guys... thought you might like to see my QRP WPX QSOs.

I only operated a short time on Sunday night 21:15 to 22:44 GMT

but managed some good DX anyway...

Comments... not too bad for a couple of hours keying...
The verticle doesn't seem to perform very well on 40M
I think the groundplane needs improving...
I could hear 'em but couldn't raise them - apart from a few QRZ?s
-----

On 20M the vertical works extremely well...
It is mounted on the corner of the fence which goes round the tennis court
and then I have a 1/4 wave wire groundplane connencted directly to it.

Was too tired to carry on - but I had a quick listed on 15 and 10 and could still hear a few stations from the US...

So, there you go, WPX for another year.

73 es gud dx oms
