Was just having a fairly decent chat with VK4ALO (fantastic reception!), and up came the noise! currently sitting here listening to the noise sweep up and down the band.. sigh!
Though proved that the vertical was my problem! Interestingly, Paul (VK4ALO) is using a squid pole – so says something for our area, since I tried my squid pole with a wire cut for 40m, and didn’t get any better performance than the TEV-1 (though MUCH better SWR!)..
Wow, 11pm, might be time to head in and get some sleep 🙂
–edit– Ahh, noise dissappeared, and was able to finish my QSO with Paul!
Was a good night!
