Tweaking station
As the weather improved it was time to get the antenna outdoor. For testing I'm using an old telescopic aircolift from which the platform is removed. Just 3 meters high but very handy for testing antenna's.

The quality of the received signal improved at lot, even when the antenna is still surrounded by houses. But now received thunder strikes are clearly visible and the ground and sky waves are recognized. The returning pattern still shows interference, most likely nearby solar panels but that has to be investigated in the near future.

Next step will be adjusting the amplifier to the best gain level and then the antenna will be placed in my antenna tower at 20 meters groundlevel.
