Hi JESS ( neighbor ) I am at approx I-25 & HY 7 just east of you. I get alot
of QRPERS asking abt my antenna sys, nothing special just a 5/8 ths wave
vertical stuck in the septic field with approx 16 ground rods sunk in to the
field and abt 10 rolls of chicken wire on top. I have a antenna tuner in an
old ice chest at the base for matching . It works well on the other bands
too. I have made many checks with Lloyd WA0WOD in NORTHGLENN on 40 with his 2
EL HY GAIN 40 meter beam at 80 feet, all over the world on 40 we run neck &
neck, not bad ! I made the antenna out of scrap alum tubing. I will be
putting up a 2 el QUAD for 10 thru 40 on my new 89 ft crank up this summer. I
will leave the vert up too. Well thats it, I hope it answered your question,
call or stop by sometime 280-0064 . 73s Jerry K0DU
