VHF contest aerials

Finally getting round to sorting some aerials for the Tuesday night contests. Horizontal dipoles going on the mast (hopefully this weekend) for 6M, 2M and 70cm. All fed from one feeder and a mast mounted triplexer.

Some may ask why not beams? Well for all round “general” work I’ll take the trade of being able to avoid the hassle of beam turning in favour of just being able to work what I can hear. Who knows, in the future, maybe I’ll have some beams too.

For now though I just want to get on as easily as I can and rack some points up!
