My E-field antenna setup - TomVal - 2020-10-11

[attachment=4373][attachment=4374][attachment=4375]Hi, got my E-field antenna setup yesterday.

I clear coted the circuit board with a couple of clear varnish for extra protection against the elements. I protected the connectors with masking tape during the spaying.
The antenna is attached to a antenna pole on a steep high ground close my house.

I plan to get some stuff for sealing the boards before sending them outdoors I think its called an Acrylic Conformal Coating.

I'm not a big fan of metal poles or clamps for the efield assy.... especially if a metal mount is grounded, and/or there is electrical noise in area. Remember, it functions best on capacitance between probe and earth. Mine are on fiberglass, simply taped to the mast. https://forum.blitzortung.org/showthread.php?tid=2749
Suggest use "Stuf" inside the coax connector.
