VHF-UHF antenna mast at LA4LN

My VHF-UHF antenna mast at LA4LN in 2009: 6 elements for 50 MHz, over 5 elements for 70 MHz, over 9 elements for 145 MHz, over 48 elements for 432 MHz. In addition you see my 7 elements for 50 MHz (10 m long boom) on my HF antenna mast to the left. The front cover pictured is from a thematic double issue of the Norwegian Amateur Radio Magazine covering 70 MHz (4 m) with LA4LN as guest editor and the major contributor of articles. The 5 element for 70 MHz has since been replaced by a 7 element for 70 MHz. The 5 element for 70 MHz has been relocated to a separate mast, togenther with another 7 element for 50 MHz.

Above: Operating conditions during the winter -- here my VHF/UHF antennas with arm-thick snow + ice cover at 4 Jan 2012. The top 6 m beam antenna was slightly twisted (rotated) on the mast during one of our winter storms. Here the 7 element (LFA2) for 70 MHz is the second antenna from the top.

LI4LN operation from the QTH locator square JO29QS on the STORD Island (western cost of Norway; IOTA EU-55) in July 2014; here is a picture of my antennas (5 el. for 70 MHz on top of 5 el. for 50 MHz in a 10 m tall mast, plus 40 m long wire behind/above) in front of my noisy neighbor, the high voltage line:

Here is my "Arnstrong rotor" beam heading helper at this field / portable operation from LI4LN at JO29QS:

And here is the LI4LN station (a brand new Icom IC-7100) at JO29QS:

For more information (until the end of the operation), see: http://www.rudius.net/dxp/index.php

See you on the air!
