Because of a important birthday of my girlfriend`s grandma I had to cancel all other plans and had to operate portable style from grandma`s garden hut near Dresden.

The QTH has a quite good takeoff into all directions. (abt 100m high above the river Elbe) and I often thought about building a tower in the garden...

Some heavy winds during the contest shook the beam from one side to the other, so I never really knew, into which direction the beam was heading.
I had to check the direction regularly by walking outside and have a look at it.

Nevertheless interesting what you can do with minor antennas...
Here are some pictures of the ants and the "shack"

KT34A before lift up, this small portable tower held it at abt 6-7m ...

This had been my home for around 35 hours
