I used the Spring Stew to check out my ailing beverages that have gotten way too noisy over the last winter. Not sure what was going on, but it is a combination of not so good practices on my part, combined with some awful manmade noise from the nearest town over the border in NH. I made comparisons with real signals to check out each wire. Conditions seemed to be poor toward Europe. Few signals heard and most were weaker than I would expect. Many had trouble copying me with my 1500 watts. Do I need a bigger PA? Best signal heard was VK6GX in OF88 before my sunrise. He was calling a W4 and I never found him afterwards to try to make a QSO. The funny thing is that I copied him on my SW beverage that I am complaining about that is so noisy! He was not audible on two northwest wires that are very quiet. Go figure! I had plenty of fun for the short time that I was QRV.
