Hi to the group --
W7RNB, Rick, is back on 1296. 25 watts, and an 18 element antenna. Had QSO's with Ray W7GLF, 58/58 SSBV, and with Mike K7mdl 549/cn88 on CW this afternoon. I need to make some improvements but I was also able to QSO with Ray off Mt. Rainer too. I am re-thinking my ability to point the antenna because it turns out there are a lot of directions to use for bouncing off stuff.
