I am a service missionary working at the Magna bishop's storehouse working every Monday and Tuesday mornings, I am also assigned to work on the third Saturday every month begining at 9:00 A.M.
The rub is I also check into the mercury western NET on 7.178 MHz at that same time every Saturday from my station at home. [AA7J]
Not being able to do both things at once I asked Bud Standford the storehouse director if I could use K2LDS and check in from the storehouse, he not only allowed it he encouraged it.
I have tried it two months in a row and it has not been a good experience.
The vertical HF antenna is so noisy that it is impossible to use.
The HF dipole will not tune up properly on 40 meters and does not propagate.
I have a 40 meter folded dipole design that does work and I am wanting to add it to the collection of antennas on the storehouse roof, Bud has given his tasid approval but suggested I get in touch with the communication coordinator who is listed as Jerry E. Wellman [ W7SAR ] in the K2LDS license file. I have no phone number for Jerry.
I know by reading the station LOG that there has not been any activity there on K2LDS since 2007 and I am wondering if there is an update that might help me understand the K2LDS mission better.
Thanks, DE AA7J [Joe]
