On this reflector so much has been written and discussed in detail about the advantages and disadvantages of various ingenious antennas and antenna tuners.
Daniel HB9IIO was once again able to experience with great satisfaction that dx contacts are also possible with a very modest antenna effort if you work on the right band at the right time.
Daniel could log the following dx stations this afternoon with his Elecraft KX2 and an AX1 Whip antenna at 20 and 17 m on HB/VD-044 Tour de Gourze:
K3TCU, AB4PP, NE4TN, NG6R, WB2FUV and K6HPX.
Good job Daniel.
