Brisley is a small Village 34km or 21 Miles North of Norwich

During Contests or Dxpeditions my aim is to contact as many individual stations as I can therefore "PLEASE DON'T BE OFFENDED” if I do not engage in rag chewing as my aim is to work as many stations as I can.

 
We live in a very quiet and beautiful village within a desired conservation area and our home overlooks the village green and cricket pitch where a tower with large HF beam antennas would not be acceptable.
 
 
I have therefore installed an IC-706MK2 100w and a concealed 160m HF Windom wire antenna 2mts agl around the top of my garden fence and accept that this will have a very limited DX performance.
 
 
All of my big DX equipment is in storage and will not come out until I have built a shack in the garden. However, the tower may have to stay in storage unless I decide to go /P.
