WWII Memorial in Martinsburg WV.
57 foot (17.5) Meter ground mounted vertical, by Zero-Five antenna, it has 120-50 foot (15.25) Meter ground radials.
The antenna is 4 inches in diameter at the bottom, and tappers of to 3/8 of an inch at the top.
ground system, with a 4:1 UNUN. 120 - 50 foot ground radials.
Gives you an idea of how tall it is, you still cant see the top, I am 6 feet tall!
Guyed at 15 feet (4.5) meters tight, then again at 25 feet (7.6) meters, and again at 45 feet (13.7) Meters. The upper 2 guys are left loose in order to let this vertical sway around a bit, this keeps the down force to a min when it is windy.
It was a little breezy out today.
Looking up from the bottom makes you a bit dizzy.
My daughter and I, her call is KD8PGO, she got her tech ticket when she was 10 years old, back in 2010.
27 Foot gorund plane vertical, I use this on 30M-10M this one is also made by Zero-Five antennas. It is mounted on a 15 foot mast about 120 feet away from the shack, this is better use to be mounted on the house, but to much noise, this far out and it is quiet.
Yaesu FTDX 5000, this is a great rig, boy I am spoiled with this thing, soooooo quiet and the filters are superb! I did not get the MP or the D model, however I did get the 300hz filter.
My mobile set up, Two Kenwoods, #1 TM D710 APRS duel band VHF/UHF and the TS 480HX, this is a great rig as well I have woked the world with this thing.
HI Q 3/80 srewdriver antenna, this is the only way to go for a mobile, and since I operate mostly to and from work, early in the morning or late in the evening I have the Cap hat to go with it so it works better on 40M and 80M where I spend most of my time.
