I recently got my basic with honours and now I am looking forward getting my first long distance contacts over HF. I would be using SSB. What kind of antenna are you using or recommending? Is it feasibile to have long distance contacts from a house in the city? My garden is about 45' deep. These look promising:
Cobbwebb, 20m - 10m: http://www.m0pzt.com/cobweb-aerial/
46ft multiband for 80m to 10m: http://www.g7fek.co.uk/blogus/newsshow.php?page=80m_Antenna_for_small_gar_49493
Any tips? I am looking to come out for the Hamfest on 3/19 and pick up a transceiver and antenna materials and build the antenna myself.
