Another fun VHF weekend from N2NT. Thanks to N2NT for staying on the tower until 9:30 PM Friday night to replace the M2 432-9WL with a pair of K1FO-22 element yagis. We mounted them side by side (E plane stacking) on a fiberglass mast because it would minimize interaction with the HF/6M/222 antennas on the same mast. We also used LMR-600UF for all coax from the FO-22s to the 7/8" hardline at the top of the tower. These changes should have given about 2 dB improvement over the old 432 antenna system. In actual use, it seemed like more. Two dB is a lot on VHF/UHF! Nice to have a some decent Es on 6m both days and tropo on the higher bands Sunday. Although we had already worked K0TPP on MSK144 on 2m, it was very cool to have Larry call in again on CW Sunday night with a nice s5-s7 tropo signal. That's 950 miles. Thanks to Peter, WW2Y, for doing the bulk of the 6m/222/432 operating. We use two K3's and one usually is dedicated to 6m/222/432. The operator at that position stays very busy running guys through all 3 bands. Best DX on each band - 6m - PV8ADI 2748 miles Es 2m - K5QE 1204 miles MSK144 222 - AA4ZZ 486 miles tropo 432 - VE3ZV 347 miles tropo Looking forward to September and also the CQWW VHF. - John N2NC, for the N2NT VHF team
