This weekend some antenna work. I've put up an open wire fed "doublet" antenna for 40m and of course all bands up from that. The centre insulator is made from a piece of perspex.
The open wire ladder line runs down to the shed and terminates to a 4:1 balun I previously used for an off centre fed antenna. From the balun it goes into a transceiver with internal tuner that is able to tune it on all bands from 40m up.
The tree holds a few other antennas including an inverted L for 80m, and one end of a half G5RV.
So far my observation is that noise is low and signals are big, it's great to have the flexibility of multiple bands in one simple antenna.
