|Kenwood TS-940S, Heil BM-10 and a new WA2NAN 102 Ft. G5RV flattop up 40 feet, running N-S at 6,053 feet elevation. A limited time effort due to other commitments with 90% hunt and pounce. I had a few short runs on 40 and 80 meters that exceeded the 60/Hr. Q rate.Bands were marginal with rapid and deep QSB at times and high noise on 40 and 80 due to QRN. 47% of contacts were on 40 meters, 30% on 80, 19% on 20, and 4% on 15 meters.My latest G5RV has double insulated 12 ga. wire and tunes up quickly on 10-80 meters including WARC bands using the rigs internal ATU. This G5RV is about 2-3 S units quieter than the bare wire of my MFJ G5RV. Many DX stations on 15 meters who were only S-2 signal strength came back to me after my first call. Worked a lot of DX around the globe with my 100 watts and a wire.I entered as AB(TS), but used only the G5RV antenna. Wish there was a Wire Antenna Only category! Thanks for the Q's!
