Set up the HF station here in Davenport, Florida, using a horizontal wire in the garage, fed with a "long wire balun" and LDG Z-11 auto ATU.

At the moment I can hear nothing because of the very noisy switch mode PSU which I brought (a 4A 12v PSU, the kind used for a small LCD TV). But on transmit, these were my first reports:

The locator is EL98DG. I was surprised I got as many reports into Europe.
I've also got reports on 10 and 18 MHz around the USA.
The PC's clock is set using a USB GPS receiver, which works inside the garage. The software I'm using to set the clock from GPS is GPS Time And Test
