    I lay out three 16' radials and it seems to do well.

    Across all bands?

    Fairly good on all bands. Longer radials would probable work better for 30 and 40 but that was what I could fit on the wire winder I had laying around.

    Sounds like my experience so far. Listening is pretty good but only two QSO's within a radius of less than 500 miles. I now have an interface for PSK31 on order...

    I have 3, an 817, a KX3, and a KX2
    At home I use a G5RV. In the field I use a Linked dipole, a Vertzilla by Buddipole, and a Trail Friendly antenna
    Mostly 20 and 40
    CW and SSB
    local parks, and from mountain bike trails
    I'm always trying new things, so I guess I'm above average.

    1. Yaesu FTDX-3000.
    2. Force 12 20' flagpole vertical.
    3. 17 is my favorite, I also like 15 and 10. Like 20 and 40 but limited with antenna.
    4. SSB
    5. Home shack
    6. Only QRP I've been successful with is using the digital modes (JT-65, JT-9 & FT-8).

    1. A uBITX transceiver from hfsignals
    2. Used it so far with a GP vertical and a magloop using an MFJ933 loop tuner; but this is for a school project and we're working on a Moxon.
    3. 20m
    4. Digital, but listening on SSB
    5. The roof of our engineering building
    6. Just starting and few contacts, but our goal isn't making contacts: it's transmitting on FT8 and then analyzing the reports on pskreporter.info in order to gauge antenna patterns and performance. Still, dollar for dollar, I think we're doing well.

    1. FT-817nd
    2. LNR EFT-10/20/40
    3. 40 if I had to pick just one. 40 & 20 if I can pick two.
    4. PSK-31
    5. any woods, beach, or island along the northern Gulf of Mexico coast – or home if it's raining
    6. 8/10. Added a SOTAbeams speech processor recently, so now I'm getting some SSB in successfully.

    This is an interesting poll! Thanks for starting the thread, JC3JIN.
