My Antennas

This is an 8-element yagi which tunes on 20M, 17M, 15M, 12M & 10M. It’s atop a three-section crank-up tower mounted on the terrace. The CD-830V-1 WARC dipole and the MA-3000 VHF/UHF colinear are also seen.

The Diamond CP-6A, 6 Band vertical. This antenna is mounted on the railing of the terrace. Birds find the capacitance hat a great place to stop by in the morning.

The homebrewed N6RK 80M RX Loop has proved invaluable to reduce the high RX noise I experience on 80M from this dense urban location.

The VHF/UHF crossed yagis setup for satellite tracking.
