A SOTA adventure in Svalbard

17-20-30m vertical antenna testing

17-20-30m vertical antenna testing

The first antenna which will be used during our DX-pedition is ready. This antenna will be used primarily for CW station. Initial vertical antenna tuning were performed at football field near my house. For the field trial I went to LA/AH-009 to try it over the rocky ground. Tests went fine and resonance curves moved just slightly comparing to soil ground. I was even spotted in VK on 30m, so all looks promising.
