CW Skimmer/ WSPR-beacon based on a Red Pitaya. It feeds spots into the Reverse Beacon Network and into WSPRnet respectively.
Without picture: Delta Loop for 18MHz located on the flat roof, approx. 17m above ground (340 m A.S.L.)
End- fed half wave- dipole for 7MHz, 10MHz and 14MHz. The loop at the far end is part of an artwork of my neighbour Friedrich who kindly offered his balcony as an anchor point for my wire. The matching network is located in the little grey box at the left side.
End- fed half wave- dipole for 3.5MHz and 21 MHz, ending
in one of
the trees some 50 metres away.
RX- Antennas on the roof top, 17m above ground : Shielded loop for 1.8MHz, currently fixed direction 120°/ 300°. The vertical has been removed. Instead, a "Mini-Whip" has been installed on top of the short mast.
The world seen from my QTH.
Horizon at my QTH: The hill behind the house prevents low take off angles from east to southwest. Towards NA and JA the terrain is rather flat.
