End of ES season

I transferred my 7el DK7ZB to a 7 element LFA  loop feeded beam by G0KSC  just to see if that could be an improvement boom lenght of 9m80.
It seems okay the matching and radiation pattern seems clear.
First signal I  heard when I just erected the mast was D4C !  by coincidence.
It does not bring more signal  
That was also not claimed  it should be a gain in noise and efficiency  the mechanical balance point was changed 50cm to the rear compared with the DK7ZB

DK7ZB  with swallows gathering... meaning end of ES DX !
