New Antenna Aquisition
I must have been a very good boy this year because Santa has ordered me a brand spanking new OCF/Windom Dipole! These antennas are the perfect multiband application for HF, (provided you have the necessary 132 ft/44m room) covering the 80m to 6m bands. It can be set up in a sloper configuration or as an inverted V, but i will stick with the bog standard flat top to start off with.
Now all i have to do is figure out where to string it up. These things generally take upwards of 2 weeks to get here from the "states", so i have plenty of time to come up with a plan of attack.
