Jan 12-13 I travelled to country QTH and checked condition of 80 m antenna and electricity supply. Unfortunately I have no time to make BV for receive so I operated without any RX antenna. Even band conditions were not bad I was not able to hear well. Noise floor never droped below S5 so I had real problem especialy during NA pile up. I did my best but surely I could have work much more stations. My next trip on the site to make some preparations planned WED Jan 17. This trip I plan:
- Check electricity related issues and generator
- Install NA Short Pass BV on new place and check if it works OK.
- Try 160 feeding for vertical described in N4KG article.
- Operate 160 and 80 m for one night.
