Balloon Assisted Loop Article

This is pretty cool:
The January issue of QST has an article about the 40 meter balloon assisted loop Jeff (KG6SGX) and I spent some time on during Field Day up on Mora Hill.  I'm sure glad we had a good antenna for running low power. 

This afternoon I made a good effort using low power, but finally settled on 50W, since my setup here in Sunnyvale leaves so much to be desired.  The observant will notice that this means I actually managed to make some contacts.  I'll write that up at the end of the contest.  At this point, more contacts are dependent on it not raining at some point in the next two days.
