New Antenna – First QSO!

I made my first QSO on the new antenna this morning (20m)!

Here is the output from the antenna analyzer! Some adjustments in the lower bands will be required, but it is looking much better than I expected.

First measurement of new Antenna with analyzer!

New HF Antenna Installation

New Antenna!

I’ve been in the process of installing a new Hustler 6-BTV HF antenna I purchased from DX Engineering. It is replacing a used Cushcraft R7 that I’ve had for 7 years.

The antenna itself is up and guyed. Now I just need to install ground radials and tune it up!
