First June qso was with Z30MCWG on 20m cw on the 1st June and last on 30th with JH8BOE on 80m cw. Z30MCWG is a club station for the Macedonian Telegraphic Group and we enjoyed a QRQ contact.

80 m Vertical Antenna VNA Measurements vs 4Nec2 Modeling

E-mail Print PDF

I did some measurements on the vertical with my AIM4170 vector network analyzer in April. I also modeled the vertical with 4Nec2. There were some surprises on the resonance frequency and after some discussion on eham.net forum and model tuning I have got quite close to actual measurements. I may need to do something to the antenna as the resonance point is way too low. The measurement and modeling charts are at my antenna page: http://oh7ug.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=24&Itemid=4#Modeling_the_vertical

QSOmonth - March 2009

E-mail Print PDF

The 80m vertical, which is my only antenna, works still fine, though getting dx on other bands than 80m is tougher. Any dx seems to attract huge number of callers immediately when it is spotted on dxcluster. And if the dx is rare the band police will be there, too. My overall DXCC count hit 240 mark in March and 200 on 40m.

March started well in qsoing terms and ended a bit short, but still over 100 qsos. First March qso was with EA6NB on 30m cw on the 1st March and last on 29th with BW9/DL2JRM/P (IOTA AS-103) on 80m cw.

March QSO statistics:

DX 90 (86 on cw, 4 on ssb)
EU 25 (21 on cw, 4 on ssb)
