I started the day by visiting our local radio club because of the great open parking place. There I raised my new W3EDP antenna to check that I could tune it properly with the Elecraft T1 ATU. It tuned all right on all the bands I tried with the long "second leg" on 80m and 40m and the short "second leg" on 20m and 15m. The antenna was mounted inverted V style with a 6m telescopic rod supporting the center. I didn't test any qsos and will report back with more results later.
