Here's a YouTube video of FK8CP pounding into DM59pa last night almost 4 hours after my sunset. Ultra-low Flex phase noise allows me to take full advantage of my quiet location.

Get an InnovAntennas LFA Yagi for 50 MHz if you want to drop your noise floor on 50 MHz and take advantage of your Flex. Search LFA Yagi and CT1HZE on YouTube and see what I mean.

The T-11 LPDA is a nice antenna, too.

I worked him too last night, but on my 5000.  Had to switch back to that for the NB ability.  Cant wait for 1.5!
