19:59 local WA3TLT (States) calling cq there. Didn't show up on the 718 with either a short whip or a indoor long wire. I could well use another Pro Whip here for the 817, or maybe an active ant. Oh well, soldier on with what we've got for the time being.
By the way, that Win Radio Excalibur looks a bit tasty. I've been looking at it on you tube this afternoon. 5 numbers, that's all i need tomorrow *smile* (Saturday's lottery).
