Done some "measuring" and I can comfortably fit half of a 20m dipole in my loft. Which is approx 50% less than I hoped for.

So I've strung a random length (what I had left) of wire around approx half of the circumstances (some cobwebs required removal) plus a spool of unknown length as counterpoise.

Initial testing suggests that I can match it with my IT-100 on...

30m (maybe)

I can even hear some FT8 if I listen very very carefully on some of the bands.
