Inverted L up and running

Spiderbeam 12m pole is up at the bottom of garden with Inverted L antenna, sloping back down to the house.  Some encouraging results so far on 40m and 80m with US,European and North African contacts on 40m  and daytime 80m signals being received at the Hack Green SDR. Clearly hiding the antenna in a tree hasn’t made much of a difference

Irritatingly I have managed to disable my K2 transceiver on Tx by shorting the VRFDetect line to 12V on the AuxIO sokcet when making up a RS232c lead for rig control and being a bit clumsy with a scope probe. Oh Well.  I have had to send off to Elecraft for a new programmed MCU chip, as the A/D input is damaged and its taking an age to come!
