Stan, ZF9CW updates —

My wife and I will be returning to Cayman Brac on January 22 through February 23. I have been putting together the YCCC Kit for a 5 Square vertical RX antenna. It will have four elements on the perimeter and one in the middle. It will use three elements in line in switched in four directions. I hope to be able to install it at least during our stay a few hundred feet away from my transmit antenna and believe it will provide a better receiving setup than what I used before for 160 and 80 meters.

During this trip I will plan to operate the CQ WW 160 Meter Contest (high power) and the ARRL CW DX Contest (low power).

In between contests I will concentrate on 160 Meters and if I get the RX antenna up and working will welcome schedules from rare zones and countries who might need ZF or Zone 8 on Topband. There will be plenty of opportunity to work me if you are in Europe or JA in the CQ 160 Contest or during other activity between contests.

I am waiting delivery of QSL cards. They should be here within the next week and we will begin sending them out shortly after receiving them.
