BY1TX or B1Z

The Low Band secret!


This photograph illustrates their top band vertical - a 1/4 wave on 160 meters. 



It was fun to try and find BY1TX. I hired a car and driver and we drove 2 hours to the QTH. If location is everything, this club has the best location of any ham club I know. They have several Force 12 Yagis on the tower pictured here in the upper picture while the second picture below it illustrates their relative location to the valleys around them. 


B1Z Club


The members of the BY1TX / B1Z contest group are some of the nicest hams I have met in the world. They are top notch operators and friendly ambassadors for amateur radio. I want to thank them especially Fan Bin who organized my time with this world class group of operators. And, this is the group who placed 1st in China and # 13 World wide for the 2007 CQ CW WPX contest. 

QSL information - I have replied to all of the QSL requests I have received. If you still need one, please email me!

 I use a
Force 12 Magnum 240 N two element yagi for 40meters.  It is 85% full size and has <2:1 SWR from 7.000 Mhz through 7300 Mhz. I consistently receive 5-9 plus plus signal reports from DX stations.Several have asked me what antenna I am using.


Many 40 meter yagis interact with 15 meter yagis. This onedoes not  It can be stacked within 5 feet of another yagi.


  • It is an easy antenna to assemble and I had Tom Schiller (N6BT) install a special switch to make it more broad-banded across all of 40meters.  Tom can build you this antenna anytime you want.
