Tennessee QSO Party

I decided since it was a long weekend that I would participate in the TNQP this year. My original plan was to set up a 40 meter loop antenna in the yard. This turned out to be quite a challenge by myself. I had to fallback to putting up a 40 meter dipole. The apex was at 32 feet with the end sloping to the ground. Basically a high inverted V configuration.

Antenna worked well but now I wish I had put up the 80 meter dipole since everyone switched to 80 meters around 6PM.

It was a fun way to spend the afternoon.

I made 48 contacts for a score around 4200. Lots of CW action.

I get to take it all down on Monday. 
OK, I guess it really is a doublet antenna!
