VK2BVSs Awesome antenna

vk2bvs.jpgI've been pretty active on 14MHz again lately, mostly PSK31 where I chat with VK2ATC, VK2VFV, VK2PN, and if he gets back on, VK2ZAY. It's an amazing mode where, this morning I chatted with UA0QGG in Russia on just 5W.

Was tuning around and heard very very strong signal from VK2BVS who is quite near by. Today I dropped over to inspect his impressive antenna array. He's on all HF bands from 160M up and uses two collections of inverted V antennas connected together.

I don't think I'd get away with such a structure, err flagpole, here but it's something to aspire to.

Thanks Sam for your hospitality.
