Hi Paul,

A nice result from Heidelberg and you did a full phase search
in 15 degree steps!
Yes, it was interesting to see the phase change in smaller steps.

Before taking down the antenna I'd
like to see how well the long wire works for ELF reception.
Interesting. Tell us about the results.
I wish to have such a playing field, for such long antennas. I would even build a 10 km long wire antenna if i could.
But i have other playing fields these days.

It might be possible to put up a more permanent antenna, 100m
long at 6m height might be feasible.  Less ERP but at least
it can be calculated and calibrated and it could stand a much
higher voltage.
Not necessarily.The efficiency could be the same or even better although the wire is in the same height above ground. It all depends on your ground system. 100m is a nice length which provides enough C to keep the voltages low. If you have 6m instead of 4m height, you may get a 3 dB improvement.
Would be interesting to try VLF transmission but I'd have to
apply for a Notice of Variation.   The difficulty there is
that for the NoV I have to plan things in advance and estimate
ERP and so on, and have a particular purpose for it.   This is
probably one of the reasons there's been no UK VLF transmissions
for some time.  It's a lot of work and cost to gear up for VLF tx
only for the limited period of the NoV.   Nevertheless, I found
myself thinking about the costs and merits of kites and balloons.
There is, after all, the east-to-west T/A which hasn't been
done yet.
Paul, what about a meeting in the UK? We could do a kite experiment together :-) Maybe some more OMs will join :-) You seem to have enough space and i guess there is wind sometimes in your location? :-)

73, Stefan
