10m and 6m summer conditions

So far I have been disappointed by this summer's sporadic-E conditions, which have not been as good as last year. OK, it is still early days in the season and things may improve. Traditionally, early June is a good time for super DX across the Atlantic to start.

On 10m I am testing my new Homebase10 antenna. This is a wire halo antenna based loosely on the cobwebb and the GM3VLB antennas. It is called the Homebase 10 as most of the bits can be bought from the local Homebase or B&Q stores.
