Mainly in CW, with some Digi (RTTY, PSK).
After 20 years using dipoles and GP, in June 2006, two beams were installed on the roof (TH3MK3 and 4elDXBEam for 12/17m).
In May 2013, the TH3MK3 was replaced by a Force12 (C3S) and a 50Mhz 5el-LFA (G0KSC) was intalled. Thanks to F4GIF, Thomas for his strong help and to F6KBK radio-club members.
The antennas are 11m, 12m & 13m up (see picture).
Also, Verticales are installed in the garden, sometimes one as an open-sleeve 40/30m, sometimes with a wire to make an inverted-L for 80/160m. it depends on what dxcc I need on which band!.
- GP 18m tall (160/80/40m) with several radials (4m to 20m long due to garden configuration!)
- Verticale for 30m @ 4m up with 2 radials in line
Still in project to build an antenna for 30/40/80/160m, but hard to decide what is not the worse system for a multiband.
I am located in the country, 50kms east of Paris, near Disneyland, at 130m ASL, and with nothing around on the 360° view (when on the tower!)
See you soon. 73!
