QSL info - we send via post and will reply immediately - send me a card - I will be LOTW as soon as I have time to set it up.
Below are some pictures of my antennas, the station which is fully remote including selection of all antennas using Netiom cards is an Icom transceiver with Expert amp - each Netiom card which has its own IP address controls 16 relays - I have three cards giving 48 switchable modes. The Netiom cards are run from solar power - making all the computers and everything rebootable should a power outage occur.
Part of the garden - freshly mowed!!
80m four square - top loaded 40 foot verticals with 160 radials per vertical - array fed with 220m of hardline
40m four square - full size elements - not so many radials as 80m around 50 per vertical -
This is our 5kw wind turbine - its always windy from the North Sea which is 4 miles north
G3RCQ centre G4PEL left G4AMN right - all regularly working 80m DX on 3.799 AM sunrise.
Second Tower with 2/70/6 colinear at the top - Innov 2m 9 element beam - Optibeam OBW 5-10 HF - 40m Double Bazooka
160m Vertcial - reduced size down to 70 feet (originally a 90ft Titanex) and tuned against 75 quarter wave 130 foot radials.
1st Tower - sorry about the blurred image - holds up 265ft Carolina Wydom at 60ft - below that is a 60m dipole
The receive antennas are 1200ft Beverage at 300 degrees and 700ft N/S the 1200 foot beverage uses RG6 fed at a convenient point - both feeders come back to the shack for selection and fine tuning front to back. The 700 ft beverage is 300ohm ladder line with reflection transformers - Wellbrook Large Aperture Loop Antenna ALA100LN - K9AY and Magnetic Loop for 80m DX
