Back to Equipment

I spent 10 months solely on 30m using the monoband L-vertical. During that time I worked 77 countries. However I missed the other bands, and SSB activity. So I replaced the 30m vertical with an elevated BigIR. This provides all bands 40-6m. Again I used a single elevated radial per band.

The EHU is mounted at gutter height

The guys are 3mm Dyneema rope from Peter DK1RP

Detail of mounting brackets. The top K-bracket is above the EHU for mechanical stability

View from across the road. I have kept a careful watch on the antenna in high winds, so far I've been impressed with its stability in high winds

View from the neighbours. The BigIR is almost the same height as the 30m vertical-L that it replaced. So visual impact was hardly changed.
