Post hello there
Hello all , thought i would say Hello .

My name is Matt 32 from swindon in wiltshire , to say this hobby is challenging is not the word for me at my home qth . Im recently moved back with parents so really am limited antenna wise which is why i do operate SOTA a fair bit at weekends . But am having problems even getting up a decent HF antenna at home due to restrictions .

Hi Matt welcome you need a location on your profile.
Last week I operated on the 80 metre rsars with a mobile whip on a tripod about a metre high with some ground wires on voice 5watts.
Loads of little antennas you can use.... gutter wires fence wires, theirs a book I have Stealth antennas from the rsgb very informative.
When I first started I ran antennas on my van roof and ran a feeder in through the window the wife hated it :D
Ways and means mate.
