    Nice sounding station Paul. Wish we could have talked longer but there was a big mouth 'sharing' the channel. 🙄 73 Joe

    Homemade 11m base antenna

    Don't worry about the SWR differences. The impedance of any feed-line repeats every half wavelength. Therefore reading your SWR at points a couple feet apart will show variance. What matters is what shows at the transmitter (radio). Good work! Next project: Make the vertical portion 23 feet (+/-) and build a taped inductor at the base. Wamo, a 5/8 wave gain antenna. Enjoy!

    I am not associated with this chap. It was by accident I found this nice item when browsing. He has good references among hams. Nice/useful product.

    10-Meter contest Conditions may be poor BUT will be very interesting how many signals will present themselves. Sporadic-E may be key. SSB & CW only. Second full weekend of December. Starts 0000 UTC Saturday; runs through 2359 UTC Sunday (December 14-15, 2019) Your 11-meter 5/8 vertical will no doubt work well.
