Many thanks to IK Telecom for Supporting this Expedition.
Their “W3DZZ+5” antenna worked fantastically!
Through the windy conditions on North Uist the antenna held together brilliantly, propogation and natural noise (QRN) was slightly against us but still we had great reports back with it cutting through the noise to contacts up and down the country plus those who we contacted further affield across the water,
I would Happily Recommend this antenna to anyone and everyone I come accross for either a Portable holiday or even
Its very light, easy to set up and tunes perfectly
The set up i was using with this antenna was a Yaesu FT 897 with LDG AT-897 Tuner.
No problems at all tuning 80m through to 10m
The receive side of the antenna was as equal match to the transmit,
During the period of its use the antenna was held up by roach poles either end and the centre around 20ft above the ground, which showed fantastic results..
Cant say again how much I RECOMMEND this antenna
Many thanks to all the staff at IK Telecom for making a fantastic antenna
