ARRL June VHF QSO Party (contest)

Comments Off

[Today’s run:  Boardtown Runners – 9.8 miles]

The ARRL June VHF QSO party is up and going and I have a total of four (4) contacts since 1:00 this afternoon. So no, it is not turning out to be a barn-burner event.

But the contest runs until tomorrow evening so maybe it will pick up later.

This evening I worked some more on my tower grounding system.  I have 3 8-foot grounding rods at the base of the tower with heavy galvanized wire going to the tower legs and attached with stainless hose clamps (3 per leg).  Then I have a heavy copper wire attaching the three ground rods together.

I  want to put in one more ground rod at my last feedline post, about 4 feet from the tower, and attached that into the tower grounding system.  Then I will also have a ground rod at the entry point to the house.
