Are you into the HF band? If you are not, this is the best time to start looking into the more interesting bands on the frequencies below 30MHz.
The normal chit chat on VHF is getting too lame. VHF technicalities has become too simple? Its a sign. Go HF! With the reviewed band plan by MCMC/SKMM, the 9W callsign prefix will be getting a piece of action on the 40m band.
In the mean time, 10m band is opening up in certain hours. With 24th sunspot cycle approaching, this is probably the best time to get into the band.
Here is a simple and cheap antenna to start experimenting with DX calls on the HF bands. Armed with an HF radio with either manual or auto-tuner, plug in the HFV6010 antenna, and you are in business.
Here is a pic of the antenna installed on a campsite in Ulu Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan. Sorry I had to doctor the image a bit to 'conceal' the exact location. If you are interested, you may send me email azmi at maltronix.com for more info.
