Thanks to the help of my friends, new radio, and plenty of BIC (Butt in Chair) time, I made the most contacts in this year’s Field Day 2019! A good time was had by all! Looking forward to next year!
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.
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!
