The new antenna works surprisingly well. It's a T-top vertical hung with a catenary rope from the 40 meter level of the new tower with 8 x 30 meter long radials in the hay field, and complemented with a 175 meter Beverage to Europe. I keep waiting for the little disk ceramic capacitor in the L-network to explode. With just 150 watts the feed impedance drifts as I transmit. I guess we can call it the little capacitor that could. Missed NNY even though I can almost see it from the tower. Signals from the Pacific coast were weak. Worked more Europe than expected, many of them replying to my CQ.
