My antenna is flying again. This time it is oriented towards NE/SW and avoiding any tree limb interference. The limbs on my fish pole antenna are what eventually did it in. The major difference in the new antenna is that it is constructed from aluminum whereas my old one was made from a pair of 20 foot long fiberglass fish poles.
I am monitoring the last hours of CQWW CW and the new antenna seems to play well.
Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
