So, I went to NEAR-Fest today and picked up some things I needed. I got a mike stand, a four way antenna switch and a mag mount 2m/70cm mobile antenna. All at really good prices.
Some good news about the 15 meter dipole. It works. I don't know why, but when I hooked it up to the antenna switch, it seemed to be fine. Go figure. Maybe not making good connection to the radio?
But I was able to make two PSK31 contacts and one CW contact. Believe or not it has been 30 years since my last 15 meter CW contact, but won't be my last for sure.
More to come!!
