I set up my FT-817 and new Elecraft T1 tuner in my sister-in-law's back yard, and used a 33ft and a 28ft wire to make a low doublet, 12ft up on a Cabelas pole in the center and off to trees on the ends. I twisted the remaining 12ft or so into a twisted pair as KQ6XA suggested and got a match from the tuner on 40, 30, 20, 17, 12, and 10m. On 14.033.75 I heard KC6T Bill cal CQ and answered him as WA5ZNU/VE3. Bill gave me a 339 and said he was running 100W to my 5W. I had an S7 noise background but gave him a 579. Bill lives near Los Angeles.
