2-ele-3-Band Moxon-Beam (*)
2. New DXCC's
- The hard work to mount the 2-ele-Beam for 40m at least was
not ended by success. During receiving the Beam showed only a few
beam-direction. Working the station with >150W HF-power, the
SWR slowly drifted off. For turning the antenna, "Armstrong" was used,
a rotor more surely had become to much weight within mounting antenna
- Nearly all Connections on 40m were made with the double-zeppelin.
Of course we got rain during the weekend!
Due to the last-years DX-contacts (VK, ZL) with a simple triple leg
groundplane, this year again a DX-antenna should be used. The Bremer
is owner of a 2-element-monobandbeam for the 40m-band from HyGain.
Together with the Aluminium-stick-tower the beam overlooked the
arround - let's go. With the help of a car the tower was mounted slowly.

So at least most radio-contacts were made with the double-zeppelin
which was put up between flagg-tower and lightning mast. This work we
made twice: the first and last time!
