Up - testing..

Testing new setup.
LA8VHF received OK. Not bad for a 13el.

Listening for scatter..

So, just my 15meter pole for the W3DZZ is missing now...

New antenna configuration for the Winter......

I have just tuned up my new Cushcraft A13B2 for 2-meter use..

It came in pretty well..

Replacing... 4 x 8el InnovAntennas OWL-G/T.. 

The OWL's are not bad antennas, but my noise level is too high to work any EME here.
So, a "good enough" 2meter-beam is what i need.
