Contest station OH0Z

The Antenna System at OH0Z

The antenna system at OH0Z consists of two rotating towers with 14 yagis on them and one fixed tower with a single 10 meter yagi.

Tower #1 (42m) has 4 stacked tribanders at 9 meter intervals + 2 over 2 yagis for 40 meters at 19/42 meters. The radiation patterns of the stacks on 40 and 15 meters speak for themselves.

Tower #2 (30m) has a 4el yagi for 10 meters, 3 over 3 over 3 yagis for 15 meters, 3 over 3 yagis for 20 meters and a 2 element yagi for 40 meters.

Tower #3 has a 4 element monobander for ten meters.

On 80m we´re still searching for that ultimate "killer array".
Our next project is an inverted-V wire yagi between two towers.

On 160m we have a vertical and beverage receiving antennas.
