    Good looking setup. How tall is your tower?

    That setup is C-L-E-A-N. Hope it sounds as good as it looks! You'll do fine when the next DX cycle starts up. Can't beat the old Realistic TRC-458 sets. :)

    The ground plane on the antenna is about 30 feet from the ground.

    Nice base setup and good antenna. Set one up for a local of mine and he loves it!! I have talked to a quite few guys in Northern Minnesota and Minnesota itself, when the DX was rolling. 8113 is who I remember most. We may have spoken if you had the antenna up for a while.

    The Sirio 2016 antenna rocks ! Replaced an Imax 2K with it and never looked back. They can handle some serious power too if you decide to grow ;)

    Mine has the special white fuzzy coating on the aluminum pseudo ground plane radials for better output radiation angles...
