I was quite surprised today when I finished stringing up my 100ft or so random wire antenna that I planned to use for receive as I found out my Icom 703 in conjunction with an MFJ 949D would actually tune it up! The antenna itself runs from the top of my third story fire escape(which is about 40ft above the ground down in a sloper configuration to the ground.

I was incredibly impressed today when I managed to work the fellow in this video,Andy UA3TCJ,as well as a Field Day portable station DLOROI/P and CT1AHU with Andy,who lives in Dzerzhinsk,Russia,giving me a 56 report! This was with my 703 on flat batteries so it was only giving out about 7 watts total on SSB!
