  How I feel the Monday morning after a contest !

  Antenna farm:

Tennadyne T10 Log Periodic @ 63' 20-6 meters

30 meters: Inverted vee @ 50'

40 meters: Dipole @ 50'

60 meters: 3/4 wavelength Inverted L @ 50'

80 meters:  Inverted vee @ 50'

160 Meters: Inverted L - 70' vertical section over 35 - 100' radials


For tuning low band antennas Radio Ansonia prefers:

"Collins CU-737/URC" (reversible L) antenna tuners.

This tuner was originally used in the:

AN/URC-32 SSB Transceiver
(Collins KWT-6 Type 8) shipboard transceiver

(Tuner is on the 2nd row from the top, right side)

W1AEX RECEIVE LOOP http://www.w1aex.com/loop/loop.html


This 85' loop is a good bi-directional receive antenna for my location. Your mileage may vary.

It does what it is suppose to do.  This loop reduces the ambient noise so you can copy a marginal signal on the low bands.

I do not have the room for a beverage.

Note that I have not needed to use a preamp with this loop, even when copying non-directional beacons in the 300 kHz band.

Like "Mikey" said in a 1970's TV commercial..."try it, you might like it"
