I live in an extremely exposed part of north Cumbria about 2km from Hadrian's Wall.  Given the extreme winds that we often have here, I decided not to put up any HF beams.  Instead, I use dipoles on 40m and 20m through to 10m.  The dipoles are strung between a couple of 15m masts.  My 30m and 80m aerials are simple quarterwave groundplanes and there is an inverted L (60 feet or 20m vertical section) for 160m.  The aerials are sited on a damp, peat-based soil.  I currently have about 30 quarterwave radials under the 80/160m aerials, but the plan is to add to those over time.

To the left of the picture is my 30m vertical - a simple 7m scaffold pole with an additional short length of aluminium to make the full quarterwave.  Just to the right and set back towards the trees is one of the 15m masts that supports one end of the nested dipoles and the end of the 160m inverted L.  The larger mast in the centre of the picture is 22m high.  It supports the 80m quarterwave vertical and the 160m inverted L.  The mast to the right of that is 15m in height and supports one end of the nested dipoles.  The small pole to the right of that supports the south and north beverages where they cross a lane.

There are currently six rx beverages in place; 60 degrees (at 300m in length); 240 degrees (300m); north & south beverages both 150m; and NW/SE beverages also of about 150m. I also have four EWEs, which are essential when the nearby HV power lines are generating noise.  The EWEs don't seem to be affected in the same way that the beverages are.

Main interests: HF (160m - 10m) DX and CW, particularly contesting; collecting QSLs (for award purposes).
