you make it sound simple!
we lost our dream house which was a lovely semi detached with a garage and large garden at one of the highest points in town Sad
sh*t...i'd have got away with putting my 4 element yagi there but the cow-bag backed out so we've found somewhere else but not half as ideal
anyways i should get away with putting the fired up antron on the back of the house and all being well much less interference on the rx than i get here and tbh it will be so nice to sit at home working dx with a few beers instead of having to go up on the hills hoping for the best

here's to home dx'ing (for a change)

Agree with you there Pad ,there is nothing better than having the radio bouncing with skip at home
and the shack door opens with your wife bringing you a bacon butty and a hot mug of tea on a
Sunday morning ,but don't get me wrong i still enjoy going mobile to DX , i think when
the prop starts to get better i will be at home on the new Antenna .......The Corsican Spider Wink

I did keep it quiet as only looking into it and have been for some time. The house came up and we viewed it at 12.30. Have to be quick or you loose out...

It's not as high as I once thought but should be able to put a 2m beam up. Halkyn Mountain where I go all the time is a mile away.... Hee hee....

The house isn't as big as we thought but it will do and if we buy it there is room to expand. Garden is big so if I want I can have a long wire up... Prob just do 20m dx on the mountain thou...

Next mission is to find a well paid job doing nothing!!! That's what I do now... lol
I find I am good at that!!!

If it's a mountainous area & you are not at the top of one of the highest in the area, you will probably find that 2 meters is pointless.
In many areas like this VHF & above is dead as it has such a short range. I was talking to someone in Wales the other day on Echolink who uses a 2 meter handy for his node as anything bigger is pointless.

20m I am on about up the mountain... I will use 2m at home with a 2m beam I think... I was up on Halkyn Sat night and got into the repeater in Lancaster with a signal back S9.

Well it is a nice radio Paddy.... How are you finding it?
