I actually wrote part of the beverage experiment post many months ago at the start of 2018 I think. And kept it as a concept post since I didn't realize a real beverage yet. But last week one of my neighbours announced he did buy part of the property behind our garden. That would mean the barbwire fence was going away. So, a little in panic I decided I had to realize the beverage before it is too late. A day later I found myself in the dark and cold connecting the tranformer, coax and earthrod. Then I made the test with WSPR for one night and listened to the signal. It wasn't really what I expected.

So another test was made last night...
|RX on beverage. WB5WPA was not received on the inverted-V|
|RX on the inverted-V clearly not the winner this night!|
