Okay, got my matching network done ( 20 turn coil, 3" dia, 1/8" spaced -
old surplus ceramic form and series 500+ pfd variable cap) Coax connected
to tap 6 turns from ground. Short wire connects bottom of coil to cold
water pipe, not too far from where it comes into the building. Can get
pretty close to 1:1 SWR.

Lots of noise on band, but can hear W1AW CW practice at the moment and a
few other stations. Might be able to work somebody, if thier close enough :-)

72,
