Hi folks,

I managed to get something up for 6 metres, more specifically a nest of dipole for 20/10/6 metres. It's good because it's resonant of the bands that I use most and only requires one feeder.

We've got a bit of a local net going on here and the other operators are getting me more and more into 6 metres, especially now it won't be too long before the sporadic E season starts...

Hi Ian, I remember doing a 'nest of dipoles' some years back. I wonder how you have arranged yours. I suppose if I was to do that today on the bands you have used I'd have the 20 and 10 metre dipoles horizontal at 90 degress to each other if possible and the 6m dipole vertical. I'm sure the logistics could be worked out and it should ensure minimal interaction between the elements. In any event, the Es season should bring you some decent contacts and I wish you luck! 73,Trev

Hi Trev,

Probably the best place to see it would be on my QRZ.com webpage.
