This was the maiden voyage for my new inverted L at my new QTH. So nice to be back on 160 again. It is 170 feet long and tuned at the base with a series capacitor. I have 4 elevated radials at about 8 feet. I chose elevated radials because the antenna is in the woods and ground radials would be difficult. It's kind of weird in that the radials and the antenna go up hill in a couple of directions. It really performed very well. I had many EU calling and they all seemed to hear me better than I heard them. I threw out a quick BOG antenna for RX that did not work at all, so all RX was with the L. Next year I will have at least 2 beverages. I'm sure most of my handicap was in the RX department (and operating skill department). Had a ball and always enjoy it. 73 es HNY to all. Hope to work some of you tonight on SKN. K3, Alpha 87A, Inverted L w/4 elevated radials.
