I am trying to work out what the average ham in the UK uses for 20m and if they are happy with station performance, as far as it is possible. ( are we all on beams or wires, how much power and how happy are you with your performance) All licence levels of course welcome...Amateurs what is your 20m setup and are you happy with it. I suggest a simple system of out of 10 - copy and paste this in with your set up and your level of long distance dx (more than 3,000 miles contacts)
My antenna is a and is a /10 is has dB gain on 20m
My RF power is Watts
My long dx satisfaction for RX is /10
My long dx for TX ability / satisfaction is /10
My qth noise floor in S points is
Overall out of 10 for my long distance dx satisfaction is a /10
I have been operating as a ham on 20m band for months / years.
I am not really certain about my own set up yet cause I have not been using it long and this will depend on hours spent dxing but here is my provisional info as close as I can...
My antenna is a 1/2 wave EF and is a 5/10 overall is has 0 dB gain on 20m
My RF power is 100 in Watts
My long dx satisfaction (3,000 miles plus) RX is 8/10
My long dx TX ability / satisfaction (3,000 miles plus) is 5/10
My qth noise floor in S points is S0 to S3
Overall out of 10 for my long distance dx satisfaction is a 5 or 6 /10
