Over all the years I just use small,
homebrew antennas, positioned under the
roof. I used them over all bands from 20m ->
70cm and especialy over satellite!
startet on 2m with just a "big
wheel" and 25W (ODX around 1000km).
After trying several antennas, for example a
3ele. quad, 9ele F9FT, I finally build a
6ele. with 2m boom witch was used over
10years. It was good for many QSOs via tropo,
meteor scatter, sporadic E and aurora (190
The first 70cm antenna was a 10ele. DJ9BV
followed by a 2x10ele. DJ9BV. It could be
switched from vertikal to horizontal. It
could also be elevated up to 60deg.
