Hi Steve. The antenna is a 1/4 wave whip, mounted onto a ground spike with 12 radials… so right at ground level. I could hear all of the check-ins, although some not too clearly. I use the same mount with a 20m whip with good results.

What kind of vertical and how high above the ground is the antenna Jamie?

Hi Michael.
I tried to check in tonight on the 10m net, but I guess no one could hear me. I was just running 10w on my IC705 into a ground mounted vertical. I’ll try again later with more power. Thanks for doing the net.
