I'm an old beer brewer with a ruined back. A gallon of water is 8lbs. Make sure there's a nearby source so you don't have to lug it for miles. The antenna isn't going to care if the water came from Fiji or the nearest mudhole.

Water, beer, rocks, dirt, mud, whatever. Innovation is the message.

I was always a gravel and sack man, myself. I had one neighbor who seriously thought I practiced Voodoo when she first saw those nylon counterweight sacks hanging from the trees.

It's a reliable beacon to check on for reception.

I've never heard CS, and a decent listening antenna is not going to happen at home anytime soon, so I resorted to the online SDR's. It's a very clear S3-S4 on the KPH SDR, and about S1 on KFS. Nice to hear it for the first time.

S5 peak on the KPH kiwi SDR at 1800 UTC on 23 March 2022.  Is there ever an ID for this beacon?
I don't STRETCH the truth.

I've tried several times to access that Kiwi , but it's overrun with WSPR bots. Thanks for the info though, I'll keep trying.
