On Monday at 9:30 UTC I had my first portable activation at 630m near by DM/NS-098 at 528m.
The antenna was 40m long and hung on a wooden observation tower 33m high.
As a counterweight, I used the lightning rod of the tower.
My FT-817 was connected to a 10w TX transverter with built-in match box for the antenna.
In 135km distance I was heard with 339 in the local noise, over 50km loud and clear.
Unfortunalty the tower stands not in the activation range of DM/NS-092. But my antenna on the top of the tower at 515m absolutely, hi.
