40 Phone Tent F.D. 2 element Colinear Array

Today while it was too wet in the yard to mow

I spent it building a two element Colinear Array for 40m Phone

It is no small antenna (260 feet in length)
But even laying on the ground the Antenna analyzer read 1.2 vswr at 7.200 Mhz

I think even if this antenna is only 6 or 7 feet above the ground in the trees on the river bank it will perform well for us.

I plan on waiting tell after FD to re-install my 80m double bazooka here at KG5VK, so we will also have it available for F.D.

Next is to see if I can repair the mosely classic 33 that is in mu antenna junk box
for our F.D. Tri-bander
