600m Success!!

Fldigi_ax2vkz

Well, this afternoon I finally had success with receiving some 600m signals from Dale (VK1DSH / AX2VKZ). This was as a result of deciding to finally just try and throw up a long wire antenna. Not aiming for an ideal one, just anything better than the stereo's AM loop antenna. The difference was immediately noticeable!! Before I could not even see Dale's signal on the waterfall, but now the screenshot shows the story I think!!

The wire at its most is probably about 5m off the ground, but for most would be luck to reach 3m above ground.
