I've been off for a day or so due to antenna changes. I've taken down the
20m dipole arrangement and put up a purpose Tee for the band.
Unfortunately the garden is still the same size so I've squeezed in a 40ft
top with a 29ft vertical section which terminates in another 29ft section to the
atu under the carport. There is a 200uH loading coil at the junction of the
vertical section and the top loading wire.
The coil was 120 turns on a 2 and 5/8 inch water down pipe. Not sure where
the thing is resonant yet although there are no dips on a regular band, (1.75 -
I'll do some check today, maybe use the variometer in a series circuit,
maybe in a parallel. Hope to work the regular gang and get some
This sure beats going to work.......
