Portable QRP SSB ops from banks of the river Rhein

I went to my old spot on the river Rhine  today where my 3 favorite trees are standing and tried out my new homemade antenna, I have made a simple 1/2 wave dipole with a 1:1 ferrite rod balun and 8m of RG 58 u, for 80m with switches along the wire so I can also use it on 40m, I had 5 contacts on 80m running 4 watts but none on 40m as the band was choc-a-block, we have a public holiday tomorrow so I will be QRV again with the new antenna, Vy 72/73 Colin  DD5CF/G1ZOS
