Its 40M Antenna Test Time!

With the cancellation of 3Y0Z, I went out back and took down my two temporary antennas that I had up for Bouvet – the 2 element 20M yagi and the 40M doublet – which is a 17M EDZ. This morning I swapped the MFJ-1886 with the NEW Wellbrook ALA1530LNP.

Tomorrow I will also re-arrange my station a bit. I will be using the Elecraft KPA-500 and KAT-500 and take the Palstar AT2K out of line. The antennas that will be up by EOD tomorrow:

  1. Inverted L for 160, 80, 30 and 20M
  2. DX Engineering DV-40-P 40M phased array
  3. Cushcraft D40 – up 60′
  4. Phased Wellbrook ALA1530LNP loops phased with the DX Engineering NCC-2

Besides bagging the last 3 on Top Band for DXCC and 9BDXCC, I want to do more comparisons between the phased vertical array and the Cushcraft D40 up 60′

Looking forward to big ham fun tomorrow.
