N6KRR - first horizontal loop QSO
I put up a 400 ft loop about 15-20 feet in the air, rectangular. I fed the loop with open-wire feedline made from the loop wire and some wooden spacers until it got down to the roof level, and then 300 ohm twinlead from The Wireman down and into the front door, as it was too dark to properly terminate it in a balun outside. My first QSO was N6KRR Olivia 500Hz/8symbols on 7072.93. Steve in Palmdale, CA gave me a good report with 3W and then 1W.
