Ant: BigIR vertical for 40-10 and 60ft tall "T" loaded vertical for 160/80 supported by a 18m Spiderpole.
QSL via VE3EY
Some pictures from the latest 2016 CQ WW CW contest:
160m vertical checks out OK
Waiting for hydro power to be restored.
Another view of the dormant shack without power.
Coax and control cables entering through the hotel room window
SteppIR vertical in the foreground. 18 meter tall Spiderpole is the other antenna used for 160/80
SteppIR vertical EHU wrapped in some nylon bag in hope to prevent sea water intrusion.
160/80 LC matching unit, built by VE3FF, resting on top of rusted car rim I found lying around. The 12 volt connection is for remote band switching from the shack via 180 foot long control cable.
Another view of a 160/80 fully erected top loaded "T" vertical.
Fishermen's pirogue boats on the water
More fishing boats on the mouth of the river
Torrential rain threatening to flood entire area from the swelling river.
This two inch long meaty criter landed right on my laptop keybard. I had to neutralize it with the butt of my flashlight.
Another view of two of the beach verticals.
