I live in an extremely exposed part of north Cumbria about 2km from Hadrian's Wall.  Given the extreme winds that we often have here, I decided not to put up any HF beams.  Instead, I use verticals.  The 30m, 40m and 80m aerials are simple quarterwaves and there is an inverted L (22m vertical section) for 160m.  They are all strung from three masts (22m, 20m and 15m high).  The aerials are sited on a damp, peat-based soil.  I currently have about 30 quarterwave radials under the 30/40/80/160m aerials, together with a wide area of wire mesh.

For 20m, there is a quarterwave groundplane mounted on top of a Dutch Barn.

There are currently six rx beverages in place; 60 degrees (at 300m in length); 240 degrees (300m); north & south beverages both 150m; and NW/SE beverages also of about 150m. I also have four EWEs, which are essential when the nearby HV power lines are generating noise.  The EWEs don't seem to be affected in the same way that the beverages are.

Main interests: HF (160m - 10m) DX and CW, particularly contesting.
