Site survey

So I decided to do a site survey tonight which really means I stood around outside, chin in my hand, for 30 minutes and thought about six different types of antennas I could set up.  I’m still planning on putting the Mosley back up but it seems that I’m still wanting the EFHW for now.  Someday, when I get a house in the woods, I might put up a big doublet with 600-ohm antenna line for a feed into a 4:1 balun to run coax into the shack but that’s pretty far down the road.  I’m wanting to do something quick so I can get on the air for Field Day and the upcoming 13 Colonies special event.
