|Maiden voyage with my 10 band rover. 150W with a 7 element antenna (home brew). Went to a spot 1 mile from home, on the edge of a plowed field. Everything worked except the rotor, worked at home-didn't work at the field so had to loosen the clamp and turn by hand occasionally. Missed a bunch to the NW and NE. Was pleasantly surprised to to hear stations really spread out (.150 to .265), instead of all qrming 200. Noise level suddenly went to S8-S9 at 10:30 right after working NG4C in FM16, so I shut down, packed up and came home. We need to do sprints more often like we did 40 years ago. Ken|
