Wonder why 17m doesn't work for you?

I have a very low, do-it-all antenna and I've noticed that sometimes especially when it's raining (?) it won't even tune up.  I'm guessing that 17 is one of it's weakest bands.

Let me finish this qso and we will try another band. Let me know what you can tune up on.

Well I just got W1AW/1 in MA on 17 meters - 18.124 up 3 so something's working.  Right now I can tune up on anything.

Are you copying me and WB6DAX?

I heard him OK but nothing from your end.

NWARadio

I'm still on 18.134. ND0SB caught me and I'm rag chewing with him.

I hear ND0SB but not you.

I just can't figure out why we can't hear one another m

I hear Dave in SD great. Are you on the vertical?  We may be to close for this band.

NWARadio

Yes the vertical is all I have. Want to try another band? I've hot about a half hour to try do if you'll pick a frequency I'll tune it up.
