well i got me end fed wire moved and that is working great by shortning the wire to 65 feet from 135 works better with a 9/1 balum or unun what ever you want to call them
got the 2mtr / 70cm antenna up its larger than the one i had up working well

now here is the funny one i put up a half size g5rv and it works well its about well i dont know the hight of it but its on top of a 3 story house about 3feet off the roof so it high ,it tunes up as it ses on the box but it also is tuning up top band i am using a tuner in the kenwood 570 it transmits ok but is this right cannot under stand it but the best thing by doing all of this is the noise level on the bands has droped and it great to listen to now happy days

i forgot to take the camera on the roof but i got to go back up will get them then,now g5 or end fed there is not a lot in it at the moment the wire is radiating west to east and the g5 is north to south so i got both coverd lol i got into croatia no bother on the g5 and both antennas are good the noise level on the bands has droped realy low and i used to get signal 9 of noise sometimes on the bands but i been on diforent times of the day listning about and they are great if you got the room go for the g5 if space is small the 9/1 balum and 65 feet of wire is good and the end fed chunes up on all the bands , and i must say if anybody does follow my little storys on here i am sorry for the spelling but thats just me,lol will get some pics up soon as,,
