Want a bigger 28MHz antenna?

Nick G4IKZ has just sent me this link to G0SXC's QRZ.com page showing his massive yagi for 28MHz. It has a boom length of 78 feet and a gain of 13.1dBd. Remember that each element is about 16 feet long, so you get an idea what a monster this is. I bet his neighbours must love him! This also explains why Kevin is such a consistent signal in East Anglia some 200 miles away.

Especially since his QTH, according to Google Maps, is a row of back to backs in Clitheroe. You would think that you could see an antenna that size from the aerial photo.

And my wife complains that my 4 foot square 28MHz wire halo is an eyesore!

Just noticed the road parallel to Kevin's is called Tower Hill. Very apt.

How on earth does he hide it!

Must be using stealth technology.
