Higher and Higher

This weekend offered very nice weather and I spent a couple of hours taking advantage of the sunshine while doing antenna work.

Using the Apache bow and arrow my 2 x 13m doublet was moved closer to the clouds. Now the Northwestern end is up about 15-16 meters and the Southeastern end is at 8 meters height. The feed point is also higher, now at around 11 meters above ground and clearly above my house.

I have no idea if the ham radio station will perform any better after this change, but now I am using the maximum height available given by the trees I use at this time.
