With some awesome post-Christmas weather here in Northeast Ohio, Black River Radio Ops had an antenna party at KM8V today.
Previously the chimney antennas here were a m2 6 meter loop and a Radio Shack scanner antenna. A new mast went up with a Diamond X30 dual-band vertical at the top, an E-Factor dual-band horizontal loop, the m2 6 meter loop below it, and the scanner antenna on the sidearm.
Additionally, all the old — and not very high quality — RG-8X and RG-58 feedline was replaced with DX Engineering 400MAX made to length, and an MFJ window passthrough for the feedline was added.
Thanks to Jay KB8O, Ron N8MPF and Doug AB8M for the help!
