Which output power did you use? I think it's a good result considering such low height of your antenna! Do you use any tuner between your transceiver and antenna?


I used and I usually use 100 Watts. The Yaesu FT-450D has a built-in ATU (Automatic Antenna Tuner). I am regularly using that. I have good experience with it. It can tune a lot of things, including a random length of wire. I am using it with this 30 meters long wire antenna. It can tune this wire antenna on any radioamateur band between 1.8 MHz and 50 MHz.

Oh iit's great! My fault i've forget that 450D has it's own tuner...
