N5MT Mike asked me about any Open Season DX contacts during the SHOT Net.
Here are my DX contacts during this past weekends Open Season Contest.
WP4NND - 1,519 miles from EM84be
CX3CCC - 4,986 miles from EM84be
YY5LI - 1,954 miles from EM84be
YV4DHS - 2,009 miles from EM84be
YV5DRN - 1,946 miles from EM84be
All these contacts was made on PSK31 with 50Watts or less on a Dipole antenna at 40ft.
It is a homebrew 14 guage copper dipole called the Spidercone, in my backyard pinetree.
It is 2 Inverted-V on the same coax one is cut for 28.380 and the other is cut for 28.800.
It covers from 28.000 to 29.300 without the antenna tuner and is a all directional horizonal.
If you hear KD4BVG or me on 10 meters we are usually on this antenna unless we are on
the 5/8 wave groundplane.
