Let’s keeps Karl’s thread going! Aerial Mast and two aerials please for 2018!
I want a better DX and SOTA Chaser signal and better reception from 1.8 MHz - 50 MHz from the “retirement QTH” we moved to one year ago, so in April I applied for planning permission for a mast and two aerials - which will be some type of HF beam and a 50/70 MHz dual band yagi which I already have.
Due to my District Council being short staffed they could not deal with my planning application within the statutory period of 8 weeks, therefore I appealed to the Government Planning Inspectorate on the grounds of non-determination after 16 weeks had passed.
So for 2018 I would like the Government Inspector that visited my QTH yesterday to favour my appeal and grant me permission to erect a 12m mast and the two aerials. Documents are in the public domain so here they are again. My application has been supported by the RSGB Planning Committee Chairman John Mattocks, The editor of Practical Wireless Don Field G3XTT and Dave Bottomley (SOTA Activator) G3TQQ, who lives near to my QTH.
