If It Stays Up…

The old adage in Ham Radio is if it stays up longer than a year it’s not big enough.DSCF1180

So I raised the Diamond X-200 another five feet so now it’s 15 feet above the roof.

That’s it in the centre of the house. The antennas to the left on the tower at two square six-meter antennas.

I can hit Kitchener and Buffalo on 440 and expect even better results on 2 meters.

Can’t wait to see if the additional five feet adds any range to the DVAP dongle running 10 milliwatts.

If nothing else now it clears the TV antennas and if it stays up through the winter I’ll be pleased (and surprised).
