Time for another W1PID story

Jim certainly has the mojo!

He tosses a 30 foot wire up a tree and works half of Europe. I throw a 30 foot wire up a tree and end up with poison Sumac!

Hi Larry, how did the guy do it? Maybe he publish only his success stories. ;-) 73 Paul

Paul,

As a friend reminded me .... "location, location, location". Jim W1PID has done this sort of thing on a consistent basis. It's not a fluke. I think he enjoys being located in and near the New Hampshire mountains. Plus the fact that he's just a darn good Ham radio operator - his skill factor weighs in on his success, too!

Hi Larry,

Nice post. I had a similar experience working from my back deck. I was experimenting with a 31' Jackite pole as the "tree."

I typed up a small description here:
