Just thought that I would report that FD did not work out this year. Even though we recently moved I did set up an antenna, but for reasons I have yet to figure out could only hear one station in Arizona. Arizona is not bad, but it was the only station on the entire 20 meter band that I could hear. I was unable to pick up any station on the other bands. I even tried both the IC-703 and the Argonaut. Until that I was thinking that the problem might be operator error with the new radio. So I have plenty of time to work out the details and hopefully be prepared for next year.
