Over the Pond (Again)

Well,

I left my TS-590 running WSPR last night on Top Band, here are the results as a map:


So the crazy antenna that I made back here:

Is still working fine.

I'm wondering if I could convert the antenna for the even lower bands by changing the inductor - the answer is, of course, that I can. However, the efficiency of the antenna will be further reduced as the frequency decreases. I think I need to understand the maths behind the efficiency calculations before I do anything too hasty.

Here's the new Ham Cat helping out yesterday. I have a full week off work so have some plans for some insanity in the shack... watch this space.


Interesting, egh?
