Well Got a Few Beams in the Air...

I got a few beams in the air, FINALLY!

The top one is a homebrew 6m Moxon, made from scrap aluminium, the bottom one is 2m an 11 element 2m antenna, Cushcraft A144-11, which was donated to me by N0IRS  (JD).

The rotator is an old HAM IV from Hy-gain

So far I have managed to make several 125 mile contacts on 2m side band and EVEN contacted a guy 214 miles away just south of St. Louis!!!
