An alternative to the 6M7JHV antenna for 6m / 50MHz
Before attempting to put the antenna on the mast, it's a good idea to pre-adjust the strain relief ropes. This is quite easily done by placing a temporary pole somewhere in your garden and attaching the antenna to it as can be seen below.
The ropes can be attached to the support plate and turn buckles using 'anchor hitch' knots as shown below.
Tip: Grease the turn buckle screws before starting to prevent lock up.
This is just a temporary knot to see how things worked.
Use a level to get the antenna reasonably level.
Seal the ends of the rope by melting with a match.
The now level LFA2.
