CQ 160 - Kite Antenna

 ... from DL0IL portable with Kite antenne

Posted by: do1ben
    January 21th - 2012 - we made some tests with our new kite antenna. The kite is nearly 80 meters high and the antenena wire is 80 meters long. Two - also 80 ,meter long - ground radials made the antenne complete. An automtic tuner was for tuning at the feeding point was mounted at the ground. Tuning works well and we made our test on 160 meters band. We tested also on 80 meters and it works well also. Picture shows our "DX Mobil" used as base, with the VHF aund UHF antennas. Vinny - DL6II - is preparing one of the ground radials. Crew was: DL6II - Vinny, see him on he picture, Peter - DO7VD, Andy - DL5AND and me.
