DL8OH operates from a rural place close to the North-Sea coastline of Germany's North. (Also known as "Radio Tiniburg").
Situated in an absolutely flat area in the midth of meadows.
An area, which is hit by heavy winds from time to time. A year ago, the 30/40m Beam came down in a severe storm and reduced my DX-performance to my good old Butternut Vertical.
Now I am back again with a new 3el fs 40m Yagi and a 2el fs 30m Yagi interlaced on the same boom. (In the picture`s center)
The 3el 40m-Yagi is a YU7EF-design, the 2el 30m-Yagi is an additional DJ2YA-design and the complete antenna was manufactured by LX2A.
The other antenna-layout is more or less the same as earlier.
Two identical motorized crank-up towers (10m cranked down and 27m cranked up) built by "Antennebouw Wind" in the Netherlands. 3 el fullsize 40m yagi and a 2 el fullsize 30m Yagi interlaced on a 12m boom (foreground tower) as well as an Optibeam OB 16-5 (5 bands 10-20m, 4el each) on the tower behind the house. And there is a 9 over 9 el Yagi for 2m by M2. Two M2 2800PX Orion Rotators.
A fullsize 4 square for 80m (two poles can be found adjacent to the 13m tower on the right)
Then a good old trusty Butternut for 40+80m, which can be used on 30m as well and a low-hanging (9 m high) dipole for 80m DL-traffic. ( not in the picture).
A 26m - inverted-L-Antenna with only a couple of groundwires for 160m. This antenna is more or less a ramshackle affair. I built it from the relics of what was left from several damages, that recent storms did to my other antennas. But: It works! And truly not bad!
A 2-wire-beverage, 170m East<> West (not in the picture).
A KLM-M2 9 over 9el Yagi-Antenna for 2m.
A vertical antenna for 2m/70cm (local FM- and repeater-traffic only)
There is a nice bird's eye view of my antennas on youtube, shot by DL2OBO - now DM9EE - .
