Hi Gang, I just finished a QSO with Jan PA0IJM on 14.059mhz! He gave me a 549 (he was 579) here in Florida. We had very nice QSO but I must tell you what about my antenna. It is a 35 foot piece of Radio Shack white wire wrap wire tossed into a 25 foot high tree (the tallest thing I could find) threaded through my first floor apartment window screen (I slipped a piece of Teflon spaghetti over the wire wrap wire so I could close the aluminum window without cutting the wire). Okay Roy Lewellan --- model this antenna!!!! So for all of you who are antenna challenged (read no antennas allowed in your housing development) there is hope in using a stealth antenna and still work some DX.
