In order to achieve what I hope to do in 2011, I will need to improve my HF aerial. At the moment I have a ‘long’ wire which is fed via an SGC Smartuner. It’s not too bad on 40m but on all the other HF bands, it’s pretty poor.
I’ve bought a second hand Carolina Windom 80 Special from a local amateur and am hoping to get that up before the end of the year in time to start the QSO365 project – It should go from the chimney to a support pole at the end of my garden. I don’t have the support pole yet so I need to work out what I’m going to use and how to mount it.
There’s not long to go before this all starts and I really want to get the aerial swapped out before I start.
