Back home, back on lower bands

For the past eight months we've been living in an apartment and while I enjoyed learning about antennas on a balcony, it's good to be back at the normal QTH. The neighbours behind us have a magnificent gum tree which supports my new 80 and 40m dipoles.

You can't see the thin wires so hopefully it won't annoy the neighbours too much. I don't really have enough space for the 80m dipole which runs along the side fences, but 40m works really well and tunes up beautifully.

It's good to be back and while I have lots of unpacking and re-organising to do my hope is that ham radio projects will again get some time.
