11 meter is very quiet?

He comes and goes pretty quick, but I do vaguely hear him at times. Do you think it may be a recording? You can definitely hear him better than I can
 
I straightened out the sigma enough to make the day, not the straightest (if that's a word) but swr is OK. Today and part of tomorrow but tomorrow night the whole antenna system comes down.

So I sure hope to catch some of you wwdx gents on the air this weekend. The band is wide open today. Will be standing by
I heard you in there 828, I had to tip my antenna down because of the wind so I cant get out. Did you hear the Belarus station?

I have the antenna on plastic saw horses. The SWR is still low at 500w, I am going to see if any worms are coming out of the ground....

He was running a CQ recording and getting back to people that could jump in there. His repeat cycle only left a 3 second gap, he was talking more than listening.

Now I hear Australia....

Putting a little heat in the ground are you, don't fool those ground hogs!

My mast is scoped all the way down for winds also but performance is still ok. I hear some distant unintelligible voices so maybe he's in there somewhere.
 
Switched out antennas yesterday from the 4' firestik to an old k40 4' fiberglass I had sitting in the garage. After tunning it, 1.0 on 20 and 1.3 on 40, higher on the uppers but useable. Conditions were good as I made contact with a station in NC from the driveway. Think I will use it for awhile till I get bored and put the sirio back on.

  • @ AWP:
    Is it possible to be on a lake and have a homing directional beam being emitted from the shore so a person could navigate to that beam's source? For example at night to a jetty.
