Today I spent some time and got my G5RV / dipole back up in the air. It’s only temporarily up, the ends are on poles and the middle is on a ladder in an olive tree :-)

Oh and the coax feeding the balun/600ohm ribbon is pretty horrid, so I have some work to do before it’s a permanent or useful fixture.

Still this afternoon a quick listen on 20m CW I copied KH7Y from Hawaii and a quick tune up to the shortwave band I heard Voice of Malaysia on 15Mhz.

So maybe not too bad for receiving although transmitting at this point isn’t an option. I will see how much I can improve it or what other options I can find to get a signal back on air.
