DX’n with new kit

Well the beam works, to be more specific the 40m dipole works. Scott (VK5FSKS) gave me a shout   on the phone to say the bands were open so i ran out side plugged the coax in, reassembled the low pass filter and of course wound the antenna up to the 10m mark. The bang 59 on 7.10MHz the middle of a DXnet. took me a while to get the ears back in but there HF and more in particular DX in all its shiny glory. It was right at the end of the net i managed to work the net control station BOB KC0ZRX (2010-10-11 1107 UTC), thanks OM you are my first contact from this QTH on 40m and with the new antenna system. So pumped for the CQWW bring on the HF. RX-> TX-> DX-> 🙂
