Discussion within 9W2JOC and gang

As usual, the VHF and HF stations were setup, and this is the first time the Satellite Communication Station was setup also to communicate with ISS (International Space Station). And it's also the first time we put up a Helium Balloon (a.k.a. Hot Air Balloon) to setup the G5RV Dipole Antenna as Inverted-V resonant.

"The G5RV antenna, with its special feeder arrangement, is a multi-band center-fed antenna capable of efficient operation on all HF bands from 3.5 to 28 MHz. Its dimensions are specifically designed so it can be installed in areas of limited space, but which can accommodate a reasonably straight run of 102 ft for the flat-top."
