Sked QSO 20m.
Today the 3/1 2016 I pick up my FT817 and took out the rarely used magnetic loop antenna. All were placed on the table in the living room so the antenna could get so close to the window as possible. In the background is a lemon bush.
I sat for a while and hit cq at different speeds, but received no reply. Then I laid out a note on FB group FT-817. Then I got a sked with a station but first lunch.
When I came back from the indulgence in the kitchen, I heard ON6KZ shouting at me. I replied and the contact occurred.
It was 449 for me and I gave back 579. Good signals, I think, given that I was completely indoors in the concrete house. However, a lot of glass in decent direction. After slight adjustment in just a few degrees, I got him some S device to.
The equipment here was the FT-817 5W and magnetic loop indoors, the other station had been inverted V outdoors, it makes a
RBN result for the day.
