Logs from March 1st

Yesterday afternoon, 31m seemed to be in very good shape, with a particularly good opening to S.E. Asia. On Friday, I had replaced the balun between my long wire and the receiver with a new design, which has improved signal transfer. In essence this involved changing the toriodal core with a binocular one, with the same turns ratio (3:1). An indication of the improved signal transfer was that the Tecsun PL-600 now overloads on the long wire! The FRG-7 of course, does not suffer these problems. So all the logs below were taken using the FRG-7.
