I consider myself lucky with the 2014/2015 winter, I was able to perform antenna work well into December. I however did not have the time and motivation to get dipoles up for the low bands.
Wanting a solution in place prior to the fall of 2015 I set about researching my options before winter returns. While still a work in progress, antennas almost beg to be fiddled with. This is what I have learned so far.
