It seems that I have been too late in ordering the HF2V from WIMO. They didn’t have everything on stock and we agreed that they should wait sending me the items till they got the bits and pieces.
We entered december, and the Christmas holidays are coming closer and closer. I had to make up my mind about which antenna to buy for my top-band adventures. As I wrote in a previous article I had some serious worries about the GAP Voyager DX. I simply can not afford to spend 650 euros on a vertical that may be destroyed by the first comning storm. The GPM-1500 was pretty much ruled out as well, due to low expectations on efficiency.
Now that my DX-88 has died again (base element broken) I have been looking for new antenna possibilities. One thought that keeps bugging me is that I have never ever had a QSO on the 160 meter band. Since the days are very short during the Danish winters and sunspot numbers are something you can only dream of these years, I have decided to devote this winter to top-band activities.
