Antenna Party at G4HNU's 10th March 2012

A successful Antenna Party , attended by seven members, was held on Saturday March 10th at the QTH of Peter G4HNU.

The main objective was to assemble and tune at ground level a Hustler 5BTV trap vertical. A 15 metre Delta loop was also erected and a 4 metre 1/4 wave vertical was positioned 20 feet above ground.

Unfortunately, a sked to contact Paul, W4/G3SXE in Florida on 15 metres was unsuccessful.

The Hustler trap vertical on 40 metres proved to be 2 S-points up on receive compared with G4HNU's existing Carolina Windom at a height of 30 feet.

The 4 metre 1/4-wave vertical worked well.
