Had to remove HF and 23cm dish/x-verter
 i could switch H/V from down in the shack. I tested this antenna for the VRZA QSO party
Used the club call sign PI4GN
A vertical polarized beam of this size was never used before here.
Got it working just in time it was already in the dark when the antenna work was ready.

In the dark it was too risky wires got struck in the trees and jammed te mast to move.
Also the weight  balance was changed  the top load was too low had to place an extra weight.

20 local QSO's resulted in FM and FT8 only .. okay it was an experiment i could hear many more but i …
