    I need taller trees then. The wire is up in a tree now but I just have stubby cottonwoods.

    And if I attach one side to my house, my noise floor skyrockets. My inverter is full of RF demons, playing havoc on my radios.

    Someone should blast some JS8CALL toward Utah on 10m. As you say, @m603holden , FT8 is just zombies.

    I bet 25w would make it here.
