Thanks for all the fine input, gentlemen. BTW, my inv L trails down along a
simple pipe mast. It is about 45' vertical and slopes away from the mast, at a
slight angle. The horizontal is tied to a nearby tree! I have only about 16
radials, and measure 43ohms at the feed (with the 259B). However, I find it
quite easy to work into Europe and JA. Conditions have been poor in the past 48
hours, but I have had reports of Q4/5 from the US. Presently, I am working on
stringing up a separate rx antenna. I can be found live (HI) at the
http://www.on4kst.info/chat/index.php site during my sunrise/sunset.
80/75m has been great. That si why I'd love to get this antenna to work on
that band as well. Hope to work you all soon. I am here for another 3-4 weeks
max, then back to Boston - confined to echolink!
