    I have some kind of Hi/Lo tone going on, 3 seconds hi 3 seconds low. It's in the noise floor because when I have the ANL on, it's totally gone but when it's off, it's dang near unbearable and I'm only seeing about 2dB.

    Got my 45 foot long 6 element up at the 10 foot (half way point). I had a 1.03 to 1 at knee high height but as soon as I checked it at 4 foot it shot up to 1.53 to 1. At 10 feet it has dropped down some to 1.46 to 1. I think Im just gonna re match it at the 10 foot height while I can reach stuff then put it on top so its 20 feet up. I did get a decent check against my 5 element (26ft boom) Radioman 101 is north of me, I swung the 5 element at him and he recorded my signal. The 5 is 25 foot up on a tower. Radio said I went up 1 S unit on him using the 6 element compared to my 5. He also said I went up 4 S units compared to my scatter stick at 30 feet. I guess its working good. I had no skip from up north coming in. At least I can talk north on this thing for now. Im calling the antenna Locomotive Breath. Yes, JT fans lol

    Nothing but noise and tons of it! Not a voice one, randomly on AM 19 a local or passing trucks but aside from that just lots of noise on both AM & SSB 20201004_194253.jpg ..... Pretty wild how high the noise levels are

    ^ Same thing here for me. Had to lower my RF gain because there was so much noise. I know it not the radio. Just noisy atmosphere I guess.

    Being surrounded by water, the skip is great when conditions are favorable. Unfortunately, however, it has been dead - really dead - quiet down here for weeks.

    Central Florida came into SoCal this evening! Pretty cool! I tried making contact but no dice. Base stations were getting in no problem. Did make contact with someone in Mexico though! A few hundred miles at least.
