Since 8-May-2020 I’m quite more often QRV from JO20vx, the city of Geleen in The Netherlands because of home care duties. One advantage of this location is that there is a 30m long garden that is about 7 meters wide, so there are plenty of opportunities to play with different antennas in a low noise environment. I can carry two sets of fiberglass mast elements with me while going here, and whatever fits in the car.
Setup 1: a mast in the center of the garden and a 20 and 40 m band antenna, getting everything 10 meter off the ground is a challenge
Setup 3: tall pole at the end of the garden, and a g5rv to one of the chimneys on the house, benefit is that it somehow works
Typical setup, ft857d, travel tuner, 3 way coax switch so you can switch between the SDR, the radio and an antenna analyzer. The SDRplay rspduo is for band monitoring.
