Yes Dave, the selectivity is very good  (from 25 khz to 1000 khz en cw)  but my soundcard computer is not good and the sound is very poor  .... I must change my computer. In March, 2 qso for the moment : SM0BRF Roland and SM4LRA Chris on 30 and 20 meter.

Antenna is what I can a " in and outter " antenna. Ran wires from inside
to clip onto the longwires that run around our home in the tree tops.

Greetings Dave ! Having my morning coffee and viewing
your excellent photography at:

 Any advice on how you guy your mast under such
windy conditions ? When I purchased my mast
the folks at spiderbeam had this webbing
sewn in a unique shape for attaching guy lines.
I've yet to try it.

I guy the mast at the 7m height and also lower down a few metres above the base. The radials which are made from fairly strong wire also prove a little support, though I try not to put much stress on them.
I did get that fabric guy ring from Spiderbeams but wasn't terribly pleased with it and now use a pair of plastics guy rings from Sota beams - these are slightly tapered on the inside and form a very snug fit on the pole.

I've also got a Spiderbeam pole and use it to support a 20/30m trapped GP when we go the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides. It's a VERY windy location so have to ensure the pole is well guyed!

Enjoying this discussion of portable antennas. Last
summer obtained a telescoping mast from spiderbeam.
All manner of longwires, loops etc. strung up quickly
and easily.
