IC756ProII, TenTec Titan - 1Kw XMIT Antennas: Vertical Dipole, Inverted V RX Antennas: 750 ft beverage to NE, 450 ft beverage to NW Planned Multi-op effort with P43P unfortunately was cancelled at the last minute. Another time. Condx seemed effected by an elevated level of absorption. Noted there were spikes in the A/K numbers during the contest period. Missed EU sunrise first night (fell asleep, exhaused from many hours scrapping/painting towers). New vertical dipole antenna (50 foot mounted vertically) performed much better than expected and will be the antenna of choice (over an inverted V at 70 feet that has been used for many years) in future P40W operations. A description of this antenna - as written by K2KQ - can be found at http://www.yccc.org/Articles/double_l.htm . It is very simple to install and tune - and the very best part, no massive ground system required. Thanks to everyone who called and then kept calling when the QSB/QRN made the going rough. 73, John W2GD/P40W
