As for my QTH, surroundings are enclosed by the mountain. The handicap of the radio communication grows on higher bands. Then, I aim at the low bands, especially on 160M.
The iron tower for the antenna is one of the crank-up type made of the Aichi tower industry.

The photograph of the antenna of the top is a dipole for 30 / 40M, and the next of it a dipole for 12/17M, and the next of it abeam for 15/20M, and others wire antennas, such as a dipole and 2 slopers for 80/160M.

Right and left behind of the antenna tower are my houses.
