QRP with fence for antenna

By Stuart 2m0rot, Feb 28 2017 08:30PM

What do you get when you cross a Yaesu ft817nd, a MFJ-971, a random length of wire and a fence beside the seaside? A qso with Ukraine from Scotland...

Upon viewing many videos with stations tuning into fences, metal roof etc with this tuner I decided to buy one & try it out for myself. Wow! I was pleasantly surprised at my result when I ran out after work tonight to my local shore-line which has a new 200 metre stainless steel fence installed. I can't wait until the weekend to try it some more.
