Information from David:
Good day all, I moved down to Ecuador with my family back in Nov 2016.
Getting settled with Gardening, hiking, baking, cooking( ex-chef) and setting up my shack in the Andie mountains at an altitude of 8100'(tall tower!).
I'm running a IC-7851, Alpha 8100, AT-AUTO Tuner by Palstar and working on my 60' with Force 12 Magnum 240N 40m, 2 element yagi, and a Force 12 C-3E tribander.
I also have long wire, end feed antennas plus a Four Square receiving array by DXEngineering.
I feel that I'm living in paradise everyday and really love the friendship of the locals.
I hope to work you down the log.

Thank you Steve, It seems that at my altitude of 8200' I get a low angle take off which is like getting an extra 5-6 db gain!

You are sounding great into Florence MS this morning. amazing signal from Ecuador! The antenna here is a 75-meter full-wave loop at 30 or so feet, and the transceiver is a Furuno FS-1503. 73
