THE 5 ELEMENT LFA ANTENNA REVISITED

5 El LFA on 8m boom

Changed out the 6 element Dual drive TET for the 5 element LFA and will test it over the coming weeks. SWR is fine and there does not seem like much interaction with the Steppir below. Conditions are good and both antennas seem to be working about the same right now.

Frequency                   SWR

27.8                             1.5

27.45                           1.17

27.1                             1.43

Good spread. 700khz covering all we need for 27mhz. Hoping it will make the long distant contacts a little easier. Time will tell.
