I have historically used the LNR 10/20/40 Trail Friendly antenna for most/many of my activations. It’s a common solution in the States.
However, yesterday Gerald (G4OIG) was using a dipole for 60m, 40m and 30m with a lot of success on 60m and BTW we had a blast on our two activations…lots of fun.
The Elecraft documentation for the KX3 and KX2 mention using the tuner in conjunction with a random wire tossed in a tree with one plus wires acting as ground radials thrown out over the ground.
Does anyone have any guidenace, experience etc on using a random wire, radial combo with a rig based ATU on 60m and 80m?
I could spring for another end fed, guess I could even build one but am intrigued if the ATU and wire solution will work. It seems deceptively simple and ideally light weight.
Here is my End Fed doing me proud yesterday on 40m atop Black Hill near Melrose. Windy, very windy but really nice when it wasn’t windy…did I say windy…
