Field day 2-April-2017

Two blue sky Sundays on a row, so I had to go outdoor with the radio.

1:1 balun (diamond BU-50) mounted directly under the top mounting point of the guy wires, this prevents sagging of the glasfiber mast. Mounting it above this point is no success.
Purpose of the day was to tune the 40m dipole, in this setup it is an inverted V with the highest point approximately 8 meter above the ground. Within 3 iterations I hadĀ found an SWR below 1.3 for the entire 40 meter band. You don’t need any tuner.
The mast looks better I thinkĀ than last weekend.
The 40 meter conditions were not splendid, and there was a SP DX contest, I just made 3 QSOs.
