[HCDX]: DX-Camp Germany, May 1998

Hello everywhere,

from april 30th to may 3rd we had a very successful DX-camp in northern
Bavaria, Germany. As usual there were many antennas like long wires,
inverted V's and Beverage-antennas in different directions. However the most
attractive one was a 4x200m rhombus construction towards 260°, calculated
for the 60m tropical band. The 800m antenna wire was supported by 24 wooden
laths in three meters height above the ground. The antenna system was
terminated by a 800 Ohm restistor and led in via a 1:10 balun. Compared to a
40m long wire the rhombus produced a signal gain of about 20dB and a more
quiet signal. The whole antenna system worked very well on 60 and 90 meters
and in the international shortwave bands too.

Altogether we had good to very good conditions towards Latin America on
shortwave, especially to Bolivia the first night and to Perú the second
night. In the last night, unfortunately, there was some atmospheric noice
due to local thunderstorms. All following loggings were made on the rhombus
