SOAP BOX -

The Emphasis was on 28 mhz CW using a new 5 element yagi at 80' fed with 7/8" heliax. This antenna was built the weekend prior to the CQC contest and has already racked up many new countries worked at K1WHS and KØZK. K1WHS of Directive Systems built the 5 el. yagi for those times when 50 Mhz was down. He uses 7 over 7 over 7 over 7 on that band on a 100' tower on top of a 900' hill.

KØZK used the 5 el. Mono bander, an Elecraft K2, logic keyer, and Autek QF1A Audio filter. Quart headphones. Bencher paddle.

10 Meters with that antenna was great to the west coast and Hawaii, but not good for any closer than 2000 miles. The time spent on 28 Mhz took away from the time spent on the lower bands, where a simple indoor 20 meter dipole was used.

Many very loud JA's were heard on 28.060 ....all calling DX on 28.058 "Listening up 2". No JA's worked during the contest; but many worked before + after.

72,

Arnold

KØZK
