Pirate DX Weekend 11-13 March 2016

As I moved all the radios in the attic recently, my Windom (18/9m) feed doesn’t reach the rx now. To get a quick solution I throwed a random dipole from window and tested it for two nights. As the results were good, I decided to hang it today, so it is placed now between a pine and a spruce, total length around 20 metres. Some kind of MW antenna could be the next step, but FM Season 2016 is about to start within two months!
