Hi Rik, Hi all,
Yes, it should work, since my first tests have been successful in RX
aswell as in TX mode.
The only thing is that you must be clear of any electromagnetic source,
such as power lines, TV sets, computers and other fluorescent lights.
On my side, the most interfering power lines are just 8 m above ground
level. The antenna, on the lowest part, is just about 12 m above ground
level, and seperated from the line, on one side (1/4), by about 60m.
There is absolutely no QRM at any time of the day. And I do hear most of
the guys on this list when they 'speak' normal CW. However, tahit is,
with a CW filter, a DSP and a fine QTH.

One more prove that a horizontal antenna at very low height really works !
