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!

  1. Hi Larry
    I read the W1PID adventure and sounds like a day I would love to spend with my KX1. Thanks for the link on your blog it was good reading and nice pic's too

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

  3. 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!

    I typed up a small description here:

    With best regards,
