First semi-serious effort from the new QTH. Wanted to establish a baseline using some basic antennas (well, maybe in some cases not really) - a bunch of wires in trees to form a phased Inverted L system for 160 M, 4 SQ on 80 M, a 40 M sloper off the one tower toward EU, 5 el. 20, 5 el. 15 M and a tribander south at 35 ft. (my air cooled dummy load except it did work surprisingly well on 20). Aside from conditions about as poor as one could imagine, it was a fun weekend. Anxious to start the signal analysis and comparisons on the RBN to see how I am stacking up with the locals. That will be a fun review. Already making plans to move things around and put in many more radials (each element of the verticals (both 160 and 80) only have 12 1/4 wave radials on the ground). Soon will start the spring work with a lot more wire on the ground over the wet lands. Anxious to see how that plays. Contest antenna farms are an incremental process - look to improve each year as lessons learned are applied. Being retired now, one can really enjoy the process! Thanks to all that found their way into the log - heard lots of really great operators which only adds to the pleasure! 73, Mark, K1RX
