80m station complete(-ly untested)

On a whim I bought the QCX kit for 80m thinking to compliment the 40-30-20 MTR. The only problem was antennas. My goto choice up until now has been an EFHW of some kind which gives adequate performance in a small light package. Rebuilding for 80m was one option but more sacrifices would need to be made than I was happy with.

I settled on a 88ft Doublet fed with some of the very light 300ohm tv line I also bought 6 years ago during a clearance sale thinking it might come in usual one day. Idea of using a pool noodle as the winder came from KK4NQQ on the Sota reflector

The ZM-2 was a Christmas present to myself.

All put together in time for the Mt Hotham weekend…
