I heard (and called) you tonight at around 2130. Your signals were RST
559 here in the county of Devon, South-West England. The last time I
heard you was about 2 weeks ago, presumably on your larger antenna, and
from memory your signal was about the same strength.

Hello all,

As you may have heard my 27 m vertical crashed in the hard winds we had recently. I have now built a new one, 23 m high and with larger diameter of the tubes (200-160-125-100 mm). I have also reduced the number of top loading wires in order to make tuning easier during hard winds.
I had to add 4 turns on the loading coil to get the system resonated.

All antenna work is done in 30 cm snow and partly in the dark...

I'm interested comparisons between this antenna and the old one.
Reports are welcomed.
