Antenna

HF Antenna
My current HF antenna is a Carolina Windom CWS80 which is attached to the apex of my roof with the far end attached to a 20 foot scaffold pole at the rear of my garden. This is as high as I dare go without planning permission, and without annoying the neighbours.

The Carolina Windom now towers above the HB9CV for Six Metres.

This is a shot of the scaffold pole, end support. Blends in nicely with the street lighting.

The G8FXM BBQ Special

My first makeshift antenna for 6 Metres, an HB9CV on top a bamboo pole strapped to the BBQ. I worked 48 countries with this via Es !
