Operated from my farm at EN93. Too early for Beverages as the fields need
plowing first. I put up a 1/2 wave dipole Saturday afternoon with one end on my
new 70 ft Trylon tower and the other end in the trees at about 40 ft. It's too
low but seemed to work well enough. I also used a DX Eng 4 Square with 9i8 ft
spacing and a 6 ft diameter Magnetic loop built by VE3NE from 1/2 inch Heliax.

HP with Orion I & Titan III

I was totally disappointed with the 4 square but the Coax Loop saved the day.
It was still a slog trying to copy the weak ones
