160m New antenna tests this weekend.....

This weekend I will be QRV from my 2nd QTH on 160m using the modified 9 band Fritzel FD-4 Windom antenna. 
Thanks to a small hill beside the house I get the right height and distance to erect the aerial. 

SWR shows to be OK (slightly off on 80 and 160) and will be interesting to explore the behavior of the new antenna at this install. 

I try once some years before and I install this antenna into urban area with poor results. 
Hope the countryside to help this antenna to give me more DXCC countries for my 160m band collection.....  

See you on air....
