OE5TXF : Contesting : Nov 2020 - Nov 2021

pic 1 pic 2 pic 3
Installing 18m Spiderbeam-pole. 80m vertical on heavy clay soil. 20m wire dipole at about 6m high.

The first antennas at the OE5 QTH were very low wire dipoles for 80m, 40m and 20m. The first more major antenna was a quarter-wave vertical for 80m. The wet clay at this QTH appears to help the antennas. In January 2021 a low 160m dipole antenna was temporarily added for the CQWW-160m Contest. In April the 80m vertical was replaced by a low 80m dipole. The numerous 80m radials were removed so that the grass could be cut.

The table shows the HF Contests which have been entered by OE5TXF from the JN78 QTH near Wels during the final two months of 2020 and during 2021:
