Loggings - 12/09/2019
Today I had a small amount of time to test out my new 3" FSL aerial (Thanks to Gary). This was a mid day session in the middle of town, I called past a local park during my lunch break and set myself up on a picnic table.
As my time was limited, I didn't get to spend as long doing this as I would like but I was able to start to learn about some of the amazing features of this aerial and the best way to place / tune it.
My testing so far seems to suggest that having my Teach PR130 leaning against it (as shown in the below photo) produces the best results.
I logged a few stations on various frequencies, the below are a few standouts.
531 - 3GG (Warragul)
585 - 7RN (Hobart)
1323 - 5DN (Adelaide)
1584 - 7SH (St Helens)
This was a bit of a last minute check, a totally absent signal jumps out when the 3" FSL aerial is added.Photo: https://ultralightradiodxingtasmania.blogspot.com/2019/09/loggings-12092019.html

I'm happy that you are having fun with the new 3 inch Baby FSL!
For those wondering what this new antenna design looks like and how it performs, Paul's FSL was the one chosen for a YouTube signal-boosting demonstration posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZtYli09mTg
