Simon updates to say he has installed a Hustler 4BTV and a rotatable dipole for 20m at his current QTH. He mentions that in order to give his weak signal a chance to complete DX QSOs, and not get buried under the crowd on 14.074, he’s going to listen from 1100-0100 UTC nightly on the clear frequency of 14.0875 MHz, in FT8 standard mode. (14.090 MHz has local QRM). He will have JT Alert running when asleep.. quite often XW0LP receives stations from NA, SA and the extremes of north and south EU, but his reply back to these stations gets buried in the 14.074 traffic!
