Rigs: IC-7300 (6m), IC-275H (2m) Pwr: 100W on 6 and 2m Ants: - single Par Electronics Omniangle (halo-type) for 6m @30ft - stacked pair Par Electronics Omniangles for 2m @30ft Elev: 1900+ ft I added SDR to the IC-275H and that worked very well. I also added digital mode capability to the 2m rig, but didn't use it. Over half the QSO's on 6m were made in FT8. Adding FT8 capability gives a small pistol like me more opportunities to work stations. I'm sure many of the FT8 QSOs could have been completed in SSB, but it's hard to get someone's attention when you're yelling at the back of their beam. With FT8 there is a better chance to get noticed. I'm pretty happy with how I did with this very small station. Thanks for all the QSO's! 73, --Alex KR1ST FN21
