Random wire along fence top AG3EK on 24/11/13
Marty, did you ever complete your fence-mounted antenna project? I am in the exact same boat and was considering the same solution. I've been using an AlphaDelta DX-EE , 4 band fan dipole in my attic with surprisingly great results; I've worked into the Pacific, West Coast, Africa, all over Europe and South America as well as VK/ZL, you name it on 100 watts. But I can't get on 80Ms and that bugs me a lot, plus I just got a 600 watt amp and not sure I want to tempt fate and run that into the attic antenna. So I'm looking at my 700 feet or so of 6 foot tall wooden fence aroud the back yard as a place for a stealth wire antenna. Your results will assist me in deciding if I go that way or save some money up and get a good flag pole antenna next spring? (Hope my HOA isn't reading this, HI)
