is located in the Venezuelan Llanos in a rural area , about
2 hours drive away from Caracas.
The pictures were made at the end of the 6-months dry-season,
but usually all trees are green :-)
reason of the distortion of the vertical lines on the PIX
is the wide-angle-lens I used to get the most on the picture
Around the antenna-area is a lot of bush with a lot of snakes
too. So I preferred to shoot the PIX from nearby ......
The antenna system
consists of 6 towers with several beams mounted on each of
it (mono-banders). Two of the towers are 40m (130 ft) high,
and three are about 25 m (80 ft) high. Highlights are
an 8-element mono-band Yagi for 7 MHz (2 phased 4-el-antennas)
and a rotary dipole for 3.5 MHz.
Some wire antennas are fixed between the towers, and for 160m-
reception a Beverage antenna just above the ground.
