Allowing eQSL in ARRL Awards k4srq 3 weeks, 6 days ago
There are many DX stations that do not use lotw, but do use eqsl. Is it more important to allow honest hams to get DXCC than to prevent a few people from getting it by cheating. I doubt if there are many that would cheat and what do they get if they do? The only value of the award is the value to the individual ham who spent legal hours getting the needed contacts. I think ARRL needs to rethink the policy.

I am building a Texas eggbeater http://wb5rmg.somenet.net/k5oe/Eggbeater_2.html
using the matching network given in http://www.arrl.org/files/file/ETP/ISS20Antenna/ISS20Antenna%20article.pdf because you can no longer find the coax mentioned in the first reference.

I have everything bent and connected. I used my new nano vna and did an analysis. This is what I got? I am not quite sure how to read it. Is the antenna OK?

Ugh! you cannot paste a picture. Thanks for reading this.
