My small station is located in Vienna near the Viennese woods. It consists of a vertical Cushcraft R-8 (40-6m) antenna, a Yaesu FT-2000 TX and a Heil head set with a microphone. It seems that this simple station is doing a satisfactory job, the only problem is the noise of the city especially the street tram which is passing by every fifteen minutes. Using a directed Antenna is also not an optimal solution as the area is surrounded with the hills of the viennese woods. The only thing I can do is to be satisfied with my lovely little station and try to get the best of it, at least for now.
Watch out my fellow radio amatures I'm here to conquer the bands.
