We are planning to put halyards on the pavilion and the two parking lot light poles so we can easily raise and lower two HF wire antennas.
I will bring the wire, insulators, rope and open air twinlead for the two antennas. I plan on using the antenna on the west side, the one on the east side is available for anyone else to use. You will need to bring your own wide-range tuner, the one inside your radio likely won’t tune the antenna properly.
These two antennas are a random length at all Ham frequencies HF-6 meters as a semi-resonant antenna on a multiple wavelength can be difficult to tune.
Of course, you are welcome to put up and use your own antenna, we just came up with these as a quicker and easier way of getting on the air.
Please see the illustration below.
