2015-03-02 Cheap clothesline for a dipole antenna
I still had a clothesline with metal core cut in four pieces tuned for 10 and 20 meters laying ready to put in the attic, to replace the UTP network wire.

This evening I found some time to replace the wires and test the results. In the 10 and 20 meter PSK31 frequencies the SWR is now good (if I remember correctly from the antenna analyzer it's around 1:1.2), the SWR meter on the radio doesn't leave the corner anymore. This also means the voice frequencies on 20 meter are now available for me!
