31 degrees C. A perfect day to build antennas

Martin PA4WM:
Today was hot. 31 degrees C. A perfect day to build, adjust and test the 40m 2 elements array.
Because of the beach width other then the usual 90 degrees phase shift, I used a 135 degrees shift and a 1/8 wavelength spacing between elements. 5.3m in this case. In basic, similar to a ZL special or HB9CV.

40 radials were used for the entire system.
After some tweaking of the individual elements and previously cut to length coax lines, it yielded an swr of 1.4.
Ready to rock and roll.
As so many other times Monique, my wife assisted me laying radials and setting up the masts.
