Ham Radio at Area 57 the journey begins
As we start building our new place in North Texas
on 57 acres of land, affectionally named Area 57
I thought I would post some images of our progress
My very first antenna at the new QTH, A Vee Beam feed point about 35 feet above the ground with very long legs (aprox 8 wave lengths long on 20m)
Closer look at the feed point, fed with ladder line to the balanced input on the back of an antenna tuner
How's it work pretty darn well, I will post more info soon.
