Operation Red-Eye Net Check-In:

A little over 125 miles from the Keller Peak Repeater with a significant piece of dirt between our location and the repeater. A little Google Earth recon before the event but the planned site was not made because the road to the site was gated.

The bad conditions were not as good as years past, but 10 and 15 meters were well used this year.

We had a lot of success with a Myantennas.com end fed antenna.

A lot of people were asking about what antenna I was using and I used the 80-10 meter EFHW8010 it covers 8 bands, it is Loooonnnnggg and you must exercise great care or it can easily become a rats nest.

It is available from http://www.myantennas.com there is a coupon code that gives a nice 10% discount on an already inexpensive antenna.

enter RET2018 in the coupon box on checkout this is good throughout 2018.
