No means of tx on this band .
But very surprised at the spots I was receiveing YV , cross atlantic stuff and Italy . The time frame for recieving the MF spots was no more than a hour .The antenna wont load up on 160m as its a humble windom cut for 60m which works a trat on 30m 15m as well but a duffer on 40 and 80 without a atu .

I am very curious what the MF guys and girls use for transmit ? I have some nice water barrels so sure I can knock some sort of loaded T job in my 30 m plot . I think the UK is allowed 1 w eirp on this band . The Juma transmitterlooks as though its only for qrss not wspr .
