David G0LRD - thank you

Thanks to the kindness of G0LRD, David, who selflessly drove out to my home on a Sunday afternoon, I now have my 2m big-wheel installed in its proper permanent home. David was a complete stranger until today (although we'd briefly contacted on 2m) and I cannot thank him enough for his selfless kindness. The antenna works well on 2m (and even 70cm) and the whole installation looks great.

Years ago erecting this antenna would have been easy but at the moment I am just too wobbly. There are some very kind people in our hobby.

David - thank you.

You're welcome Roger. Feel free to post the the return-loss plot we measured. I think many will be interested in the excellent match of the WiMo big wheel.

David - I'll include the return loss plots in a future blog entry. I really am so appreciative of your kindness - this was SO kind of you. A million thanks.

Roger,
If I lived closer, I'd be over this afternoon! Unfortunately, I'm on the wrong side of the pond.
