XE1KK 29290 S9+

Need I say more   ?   Mexico in FM on 10m
XE1KK FM 29.290MHz
JH1SCD 28MHz FM recording
Today I felt a bit like a Greek ham...
No QRL and 28MHz filled with DX ;-))


I had fixed the "ARC" problem in  my 160 inv. L-vertical by using a spreader wire along the rotary dipole. To separate the vertical wire from the metal parts. Since the wire carries very high RF voltage at the top.
The Insulation was browned out at some parts. Also with low power there was a short-circuit.  I could not TX in windy conditions.



When testing the antenna and trying to hear anything from T32C on 80/160  found that 160m was not as bad as I and others thought..
I was heard well in JA heard a few JA's and could easy work HL5IVL @ 1821.5   and  later heard KH2/N2NL  again at 1826.5  weaker then the days before but now I could contact for a new one thanks Dave!
I have extended the inverted L with 3m wire tuning it below the band and now using the tuner to match it.  I hope that the max current point is elevated this way and my earth system quality does have less influence to the ERP.
