I asked Russ if he had any large capacity batteries I could pinch for Jock White Field Day in ZL this year – the next thing you know we’re a team of three building an antenna the size of the moon.
Absolutely magnificent, we really broke the back of the job today – we just need to tension the wire to see where our feed point needs to be, drop it back down and then wire in a feeder and a couple of 1/4 wave legs for the bands we want to use and we’ve got ourselves an antenna.
Should be an absolute monster with no trouble busting through local QRM on 80 meters!
Hopefully Omicron doesn’t make a mess of our plans for next weekend!
