Full field test of the DX Commander expedition antenna

I had the chance to build the DX commander Ultra (expedition) antenna with more patience than the previous field build attempts.

During this overnight camp I set up the antenna for 40m, 20m and 15m, also running APRS on 2m.

Hopefully the video will show the progress I have made getting to grips with the antenna. Ideally you will need a good day’s input to cut the wires and build the antenna. A good day is not what I can get recently due to work commitments so I grab what I can, even building the antenna in the field.

Had a successful evening making contacts on 30 watts.
