A few Stations from this years World Wide CQ Contest. I was operating on the FT847 Earth Station From Yaesu.The Antenna's i used were Hustler 6btv on 21mhz,and on 14mhz i was expermenting between the Hustler and a Hombrew 20m Dipole, which was horizontal in an L configaration.It is 33ft in total length and is made from good quality 3mm multi strand copper wire which is sleeved.The Antenna is resonant across the 20m band so i run direct from the 2 way switch i use to change between the Hustler and the Homebrew 20m Dipole,i was extremley surprised with the Dipole's excellent performance i managed 14 Zones and 8 new countries.
Here are some DXCC Worked on 21mhz using the Hustler 6BTV and 50W.
