The EA-Bazooka antenna, DBZ80 and DBZ40


The Bazooka antennas (DBZ40) were hung in the east / west direction by the Versatower at around 16 meters. Then this is braced to an auxiliary mast (5 meters) to the west. EU and DX contacts are possible without major problems (first QSO's with VK, JA, YB, etc.)! If possible I will also install the DBZ80 antenna before winter. You can see the VSWR diagram at the bottom of the page!
