Henry! I don`t care if you can talk to people on Hawaii - One more antenna in the garden and I`ll kill you.
Many thanks for looking me up - I have been active since 1962. Mostly to find on cw, using a SCHURR key.

My rx antenna has a front/back - 25dB plus
My TX antenna H1 is a loaded 12 meter vertical with (as many radials as possible). W1 (13.5meter) - W2 and W3 the reflector made of antenna wire, in my case a total lenght of 19.5 meter for 7.1 Mhz (1/2 wave lenght). H3 is distance between ground and reflector (15 cm). Switch between W2 and W3 are used to switch reflector to director. The ends of W1 and W3 are attached to the vertical with nylon rope (top and bottom). When the antenna used on 60 meter I have a coil aproxx. 5 MicroHenry put in where the slooping and horizontal part meets, plus W3 are extended 2.5 meter. When used on 80 meter H1 are extended with a 12 MicroHenry coil.
- For further info, look up "Spitfire antenna" on Google.
S2, if possible close to a 1/4 wave lenght.
