Hi Felix,
How are you with your illness ?
I built according to your instructions the 160m version, and was using it now several times.
Last time was the field day of the last weekend. The antenna is installed quickly, and also
removed quickly, as I can't install it permanently... Neighbours and so on ... hi hi ...
and I did not keep some distance from ground, as you suggest, but nevertheless, I am
fascinated about the capability of it, for this size. I never had a problem: all stations I heared
answered my call. Crazy thing.

Many thanks for your effort and all the best to Basel, or wherever you might be.
