[AMRadio] Transmitters and Iron

Didn't try 10 meters.  My problem with the high bands is every time I
try them, I call CQ for about an hour and listen to dead air.   The
payoff QSO probability v. work in getting on 29 MHz is not good enough
to attract me.  I like a sure thing.   So I pretty much stick with
3880 and 3885.  Now, what I did do is discover my 20 m. dipole tunes
to 50 ohms with the KW matchbox on 30 m., with the matchbox bandswitch
on 40 m. (sounds like a line out of "Airplane!" doesn't it).  So I
worked 30 m. CW Saturday night.
