Tests Performed on Completion

After Completing the Antenna system so far I Eagerly Connected The HF Steerable Dipole to the Radio (Kenwood TS-940s) and had a quick tune round.

In the Half Hour or so that I Tested it I Heard : JA1EIA, VK3OM and VE3YJ, All at 57 to 59 Signals; I did try calling the JA and VK but there was quite a pile up, so I had no joy.I then called VE3YJ who was using a 1000watt’s into a far better Antenna system (LOL) and he came straight back to me and we had quite a nice QSO, My report was 55 and I gave him 59, but when you consider the Antenna and Power Difference I was really pleased. Power i was using was only 100watt’s
