More preparation work going on

Martin PA4WM ; As the shipment of our gear is getting nearer, preparations are keeping us busy.
The multiband 15-10m vertical is tested, a spool with a radiator and “T” topload for topband is ready and fasing lines for the 2 elements 40m array are cut to their specific length.
On 40m we will use 1/8 wavelength spacing and 135 degrees fasing. This to keep a small footprint on the narrow beach…

Preparation in progress

As the team travels to Since the destination of this DXpedition is an uninhabited island without a shopping mall or hardware store, preparation is of great importance. For example, in recent weeks Gerben PG5M has worked on the antenna patch panels, the Band Pass Filters (160-10m), 200 Watt and 10 Watt versions and a number of CMC Chokes.
