Weather was nice, no wind and 26c so install the Polish made 161AT080 Bambi <> antenna against the fence post and point towards the south and an English accent came through the speaker and it was Pete in the mobile 50km south of Basra in Iraq, so a nice surprise indeed.
And of course the antenna, not a great photo but you get the idea I guess
Only summertime and still weather is best for this one. It’s done me proud the last 5 years with Fiji and Papua New Guinea the best ones with it tied to a fence in Munich. As you hear Pete was running Military / Security Codan radio, antenna tuner, vertical and 50w and from my side was the “low noise” Grant II Premium, Sadelta MB-4 because Sadelta and President work, 50 watts end the <> Bambi antenna.
