Wow am I excited! I just made my first contact with my NorCal40!
The weather here finally got better and I stretched a long wire
(about 95 feet) out my window to the nearest tree. SWR was 2.0 to 1,
not great but I don't have a tuner yet so I went ahead anyway.
(Anyone suggest a good tuner?)
I contacted KA2JPR in Mt. Holly, NJ a good haul from my QTH
of Youngstown, Ohio! He gave me a 599 report. By the way, this
is also the first CW contact I have made since about 1983 and the
first HF contact I have had since about 1987! Thanks NORCAL forfor
getting me back to a VERY exciting part of ham radio.... HOMEBREW!
(Or Kit brew if you prefer!)
