I guess I'll have to try to help fix that lack of 5-call problem you note...
As I read you message I recalled the exact quote my Dad used when he was telling me, as a young Novice, what bands are good when. "Someone is always home on 40 m."
Alas! I must get back to work so I an pay the power bill. And mortgage. And gas bill. And groceries. And insurance. And...

You are so very right!
I hate to say this, but I can't ever recall a *5* call being heard here.
Strange! I'd say turn the antenna, but the lot is far too small. I have
gone to a 40mtr Double Bazooka though.
Even using the TS-2000 into the LK-500ZB gets great reports in 1 and 2
land, along with one out in CO the other day.
I'll take it! I can't deal with anything heavier than the LK-500ZB. I
sort of dread moving the SP-600 into position. I really don't think it
will hear any better. Now when my R-390A gets it thorough professional
restoration, *that* may make a big difference!
