New Equipment!

I added an EQ Plus by W2IHY recently. I've always felt that I needed a little extra "talk power" and don't plan to add an amplifier or a big antenna right now. I worked special event station HF2010CY in Poland and Z36T in Macedonia on 40 Meters SSB after hooking it up. There was quite a pile up calling the Macedonian station but I got through on the second call!

Wow, ever since I put up the Force-12 Flagpole antenna (4/15), it seems to have coincided with an upturn in the sunspot cycle. Let's hope this continues!
