WSPR with "Kurz Geratener Dipol"-antenna

In the last two days I built the KGD-dipole and mounted it on the roof.
I made it resonant for 10,149 MHz for WSPR and surprisingly the first WSPR transmission with 5 Watts brought the following reports:
2010-04-22 16:20 DM1RG 10.140222 -8 0 JO61ei 5 G8SQH IO81tx 1018 280
2010-04-22 16:20 DM1RG 10.140257 -6 0 JO61ei 5 F6BIA JN18dq 778 252
2010-04-22 16:20 DM1RG 10.140253 -18 0 JO61ei 5 DL3LST JO61fi 6 90
2010-04-22 16:20 DM1RG 10.140255 -19 0 JO61ei 5 VK2/VK6DI QF55hf 16224 77

The antenna is only 1,30m long, two inductors with 64 winds each in the middle with a capacitor of 330 pF and then only two aluminium dipole arms 50 cm each.
I left the Yaesu with my big vertical antenna run parallel and found out that the KGD-dipole is receiving about 3-5 dB weaker than the vertical antenna what looks good to me.

I plan to build the same antenna for 14 MHz too soon and also use it for WSPR.

So from now on, my equipment for WSPR (except the laptop, hihi) is homebrew only:
Genesis G3020 SDR and KGD dipole from QRP project Germany (see link above). More to come!

I wish you all a nice weekend.
