HF Vertical in action  
  This is the Vertical HF antenna in real life.

I have it set up at a Michigan State Park Campground.

I am copying code on 160meters,phone on 20/40/80

I have made contacts on 20/40 to the east coast and the North Carolina.

The antenna is just 12 hours old at this point. needless to say im happy.

I added a peice of horizontal ladder line (all I had with me) so as to get some NVIS. it has helps a lot.
