|The first antenna up. This was our main antenna: it supported 160 to 10 meters. It withstood some serious pounding by waves and the antenna coupler required some servicing, but it kept working throughout the entire operation. about half way through the operation the top horizontal wire broke at its 2/3 point. fortunately, the brisk winds kept the wire floating at fairly good angle and our 160 meter signal was not effected. The first (GM3POI on 160) and the last QSO (MM0GPZ on 20) were made on this antenna.
