    V55V in Namibia has one of the biggest signals out of the southern part of Africa.

    For over 20 years this station was improved. The farm has 26000 hectares and there is absolutely no space limitation. Martin (V51MW) says, he has tried all possible antenna systems and he is convinced that his Rhombic Antennas are best.

    He uses three of them, two with 160m each leg beaming into USA and EU. A third one has a side length of 80m looking into EU. The gain of these systems reaches up to 10dB and even more, depending on the band used.

    V55V was used for countless Contest and DXpedition activities during the past years. A big Signal was guaranteed!
