This was more of an antenna test than a contest for me. Strung two full-size radials around the eves of my house and garage (sort of a handlebar mustache pattern) about 10 ft above the ground. Suspended an inverted-L (well a droopy inv-L) from my tower with the apex at about 70 ft and the "horizontal" portion sloping downward at 45 degrees. Resonant at 1.9 MHz, but with a >4:1 SWR at best - no matching network. Most QSOs were the result of very good ears and persistence on the part of the ops. Rig: K3, 100 watts 73 de Bruce, WA7BNM (
