My name is Beth and QTH is close to the South West coast of Wales, passed my foundation licence MW6VOW in June 2012 after many years of procrastination, then upgraded to 2W0VOW at the begining of February 2013,  took my full licence exam on the 8th of December 2014 confirmation was received on the 17th of December,  happy days smiley

Equipment here is a Flex-3000 , Kenwood TS-480HX . For antennas, I started off using my home built 3/4 wavelength 40 meter band wire (30m), with 1/4 wave counterpoise (10m). I then got a 2 el quad with 5 bands (thanks Steve). My latest antenna project has been my new SteppIR DB18 - a 3 element yagi with two active elements on 40, one element on 30, and 3 elements from 20 - 6 meter bands . You can see pictures of the SteppIR installation below here. I still have all the antennas mentioned above, but use the SteppIR most of the time. I also recently purchased and installed a new GAP TITAN 80-10 meter band vertical, as a reference and spotter antenna.

March 2015 installed 1/4 vertical for 80m with 60 1/4 radials, night time RX is fine but daytime -81dbm QRN from local solar panels so in April installed an homebrew 80m delta loop with 75ohm 1/4 stub at 60ft, fab results so far, much quieter and not a susceptible to QRN as the vertical.

April installed another homebrew Delta loop for 40m vertically which didn't work so well, so re-orientated to horizontal at 50ft works so much better QRN is 12db down over the GAP :) big improvements in signal to noise and medium DX signals.

Thanks for stopping by my page. If you have worked me on one of the bands, thanks for the QSO and look forward to many more QSO's
