I had antenna exercise. During my work 160m antenna current melted plastic cord carrier and all wire went to ground at night. Strange , but SWR showed 1:1.2 and I operated of course without succes. It was in the night and I dicscovered damage in the next morning.
By the way of fixing 160m I changed configuration of 30/40m. Now I have single vertical for this both bands.
I will participate in WPX RTTY Contest during weekend 8-9 February . If you need Norfolk Island on RTTY please call me.
My 160m antenna tunes on 6m with SWR 1:1.9. Today I made few ZL and VK contacts on 6m. Waiting for more….
Maybe I should make dedicated 6m antenna?
As I am operating all amateur bands , there is no much time to check 160m. However I will try to be there about 11-12 UTC and again during my sunrise time – about 18:10 UTC. Maybe not every day but you must be patient and monitor frequency. About 11 UTC I will transmit on 1840 kHz and at sunrise I will try to be on 1836 kHz.
Bad news is that from today there will be no more 30m operation. Good news is that on 30m pole I mounted 160m inverted L and from today I begin FT8 operation on this band.
