At the time
of our initial two-way QSO, Scott's transmitter consisted of a homebrew DDS
exciter using a Darlington-pair final running about 1W output.
My transmitter was also homebrewed, using a crystal controlled exciter into a single FET amplifier at 100W out. Both of us used similar antenna systems for transmitting, a loaded three-wire flattop 'T' . On receive, both stations used small backyard loop antennas.
only 2200m activity west of Ontario, it is hoped that our efforts will stimulate
more interest in LF on the west coast and western provinces.
As well, we are both working towards improvements in antenna systems and increased power levels for the upcoming winter season.
