Orion guards my antenna system!
This is a photo I took in the back garden just a few minutes ago, at around 19:45 UT. It shows the brilliant constellation Orion beside some of my antennas. The antennas shown include one of my verticals, the Antron 99, which I use for 15m and 12m (and it does very well by the way, getting me into the Far East yesterday so I won't be getting rid of it any time soon!), and attached to the pole supporting the Antron is the 6m dipole. You can also see my discone for 2 metres and, if you look closely, you will see the ribbon line, and perhaps the wire itself, of my half-size G5RV.
