This year we wanted to seriously compete in CQWW CW from ED1R contest station. While the station is equipped reasonably on all bands with Yagis and verticals, there were no dedicated receiving antennas available – yet. Out of my former contest participations from other stations I know that when it come down to winning a CQWW, dedicated receiving antennas are a must have. Beverages provide great directivity and reduce the EU clutter significantly.
A couple of minutes ago I was informed by Bob 5B4AGN that he developed W3NQN style Bandpass filters. Probably the most important information is that he is taking orders for PCB.
