New low band antenna for Kyrgyzstan

I am in the process of doing something to increase signal performance on the HF bands below 30m from the radio location availble in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

To reach my target, I am supported by Andrey, RA6LBS of the company Low Band Systems (distributed in Italy by Momobeam company) provided capital parts for this projectproject and by George, EX8MAT who is taking care of  the mechanical installations

In the pictures below, part of the inside of the Matching Unit V160-30 is shown.

 

This units will be applied to a 17m high vertical antenna recently received by EX8MAT George.

The receiving part, is planned to be improved by the use of a wire antenna BOG, Beverage on the Ground. The suitable elements are shown next.

New coaxial cable AIRBORNE 5 and ULTRAFLEX 7  from the company Messi & Paoloni has been purchased.
