As you can see it was ideal weather conditions when I assemble
the antenna. My old A3WS in front, the log periodic behind. I also
experience the perhaps only advantage of having a flat roof, this gives
you plenty of space for antenna constructions. BTW snow is actually very
rare here on the island even though it's 55 N latitude.
OZ1LXJ adjusting the topwire.
This antenna have survived over 200 km/h or 150 miles/h wind.
It's not a genuine Log Periodic as some of the band are interlaced to
the system. It works from 6 - 40m. The 6m dipole element is attached
underneath the boom, but it still have some front/back about the same
as my old 3 element monobander. From 10-20m it works as either 4 or 5
element, on 30m as a 2 element and as a dipole on 40m. The boom length
is 8m or 24 ft.
Still working hard.
Not my new swimming pool, soil here is clay and stone. All
you see on left top has been dug up. I did get about 100
L water a day
from the ground until the concrete was in. The hole measure
2 x 2 x 2m.
TNX to OZ1LXJ, OZ2ICE, OZ3ACC, OZ8ABA and Bent for climbing,
delivering, driving, welding and being so helpful.
