"Life is too short for QRP"

Except if you're WSPRing!

More about WSPR; K3UK, Andy's unoffcial WSPR Guide  and/or G0KYA's presentation

and on the Spots pages  you can see what's going on!

Top antenna at 16m AGL when fully extended, can be telescoped down to 12.5m and folded down for maintenance work.  Full story with pictures here!

MFJ-1775 Multiband Dipole on top (See review here, my experience so far closely parallel Phil's), I have mounted it as a 4-band HF-dipole only, omitting the 2- and 6-meter option! See Close-Up Picture!

17 ele. M2 5WL 14.7dBd for 144MHz in the middle, with PA3BIY ATF54143 LNA.

4 ele. HomeBrew long yagi for 50MHz

So for now I' running a random wire antenna at low height only ;-(

I'm QRV on all bands from (160) 80 m to 2m, and look forward to a QSO with you. If you can't reach me via radio, you can always send me an email at:
