Six Meter Summer
My Buddipole Antenna, Configured as a 2 Element Yagi for 6 Meters
The ribbons are to keep me from poking my eyes out on the end of the whips.
Here, I’m trying the antenna out in my driveway before I take it to the beach.

Six Meter Summer!
This pavilion is my favorite operating spot at Hagen’s Cove.
It overlooks Dead Man’s Bay, on the Gulf of Mexico in Perry Florida.
I’m going to spend the summer playing around with my Kx3 on 6 meters. The antenna here is a Buddipole, configured as a 2 element Yagi. Its easy to assemble in the field, so I’ll take it to the beach (Hagen’s Cove) and try to make some contacts with it. I’ve been a ham for 22 years but have never done much with 6 meters. This will be a 6 meter summer for me. Join me, I’d love to have a ham radio buddy to share the adventure with.

Ernest it looks like a great spot for operating sheltered from both the sun and the chance of rain. Do post how the 6 meter season goes. I have been reading lots about 6 meter action on various blogs but have yet to give it a go.
