Ok, between 3 and 30 MHz so I'll plump for anywhere around 15 MHz

Is there a prize?

Whack a dipole up, if that fails run out a trailing wire, the antennae of Gods and idle bastards.

If your equipment has the capability then I would definitely go for aerial diversity, with one being vertically polarised and the other horizontally

Don't forget to earth it, using your body as a conductor.

Well, apparently the OP is still 'online' so I can only assume he has fallen into an alchohol induced Coma.

Cheers!

Uh if you mean in skywave terms, 300-1500km, by the book.

great contribution. Not interested in the thread? well **** off and read a different one
Don't get me wrong, I always enjoyed the creative stuff my RTg got up to in order to get comms in; mind you, he was odd as an odd thing, first thing he'd ask once we'd set up after a move was whether he could dig in to Stage 2 when off stag and had done changes.

Personally, I spent more time worrying about the giant Yagi antenna on top of the 21m mast with the lethal elements which would plunge earthwards like javelins if not properly secured.
