my new antenna is up.  Parallel fed half wave dipoles for 160m and 75m
at 300ft height, fed with 75 ohm twin feeder, with balun in shack.
Loads up a treat with 1.2:1 SWR on the interesting bits of the bands.
Already had a couple of shocks with static build up before connecting
the static drain circuit hi hi..

I will be working on new low noise RX antennas over the next
days/weeks.  Email reports would be welcomed.
