20m 1/4 Wave Vertical OTA

I finally setup the 20m 1/4 Wave vertical this morning and started collecting WSPR data. I am run 1/2 Watt WSPR on 20m as NO5V/3 with this antenna. It is really fairly compact as only about 16 feet of mast is needed. I am using 12, 16 foot radials as before and am using the 1:1 current balun I made previously. It is less than 1.5 SWR across the whole 20m band. I’ll run this a couple of days and see what happens. I may try and lengthen this for 40m later this week.
