After too many years of inefficiently loading a 40 meter beam on 160 - I FINALLY hung an inverted L and built a W0UCE / K2AV FCP! With the L length at 155 feet and an isolation transformer, the antenna L matches perfectly without any matchbox or ATU. Used 100 watts for first evening, i.e. 300 QSO's. Then changed feed line to high power coax - and switched to high power for another 200 QSO's on second night. Tested the new antenna by comparing to bigger set-ups. Listened to K0RF running. He's 100 miles north of me. With his 4 square - he was running EU stations that I couldn't hear (or even see any trace of on P3 scope). Now its time to add a receive antenna. Fun contest - and thanks for the QSO's. 73, Alan K0AV
