Had a bit of time on my hands today so I thought lets make a mono band dipole for 20M. Run some RG8 down the end of the garden and chucked the dipole on the garden fence about six feet off the ground running horizontal. After a bit of fiddling about I got the SWR down below 1.4 on 20M and made some cracking contacts in Sweden and Croatia straight away. I have always loved 20M but have not used it for a few years. Best part was asking my wife to find the new antenna, She couldent  20M diipole 1f600

Always good to hear about antennas being made up, installed and worked with so well done Rich. 20M diipole 1f44d 

Sounds like it's doing you a great service so far too with your Continental contacts there and I wish you the best with further activity on it.

(I always get that nice warm feeling for anyone who gets any kind of antenna up and works the airwaves. Smile )

I love messing about with dipole antennas, I was using an inverted V for 10M/11M in my attic a few years ago and with 15W SSB it's amazing what you can achieve. I just need to get this 20M dipole up a little higher now.
