    Out /P for club top band net

    My local club is trying having a top band net, Tuesdays at 19:30 (BST) on 1925kHz.
    I put up a 10m center loaded vertical with 5x20m radials. I was one of the strong signals on the net :-)

    Does look good, I'd be interested too.
    Looks a bit like as well as the centre loading you are helically winding the wire around a fishing pole?
    As I have a 8m and 10m fishing pole this interests me too.

    I'm working on a MkII with what I hope will be an improved loading coil. A bit more "fiddly" to build but might provide a better coil. I'll write it up when I've built it.
