Todays Activity

Finally got the antenna hung. I used a slingshot to place the line over the tree and got it over on the first try. Installed a air choke balun - 11 turns of coax around a 4 inch PVC pipe at the ladder line fine feedpoint. Installed the shack ground - 6 gauge wire connected to the shack ground bus. The antenna - A G5RV was configured as an inverted V with the included angle about 130 degrees. The center point is about 50 feet above ground level. I hooked up the coax to the TS830 and found some French language broadcasts on 40m
