    I gotta get some antennas up
    I've been using a long wire in the attic to do some listening with the new IC718. Man, I gotta get a transmitting antenna up!!

    Last night, I heard an Island On The Air (IOTA) station from Deer Island off New Brunswick, Canada (VE9) at S59+. I heard a station from Belgium booming in on RTTY calling CQ MULTIPLE TIMES with no answer!! I've heard all kinds of stuff during my "learning-how-to-use-the-rig" listening sessions. I've been going back and fourth in my head on what I want to put up. I'll probably start with a 20M dipole and then add a 40M dipole installed in a "Z" pattern (to fit). See what the 40M looks like on 15M. Maybe follow with a 10M Vee on the appex of the roof. Who knows!?

    If nothing else, I at least want to put up the 20M antenna this weekend. More on that once it's done...........
