PI4TUE uses a WARC vertical on top of a 200 ft building.

I am using a full wave vertical loop for 30m, which happens to work on 80m 
(NVIS) as well..

When I ping a get answers form SM0RWO, PI4TUE, S52FAA-0 and IS0GRB-3 most of 
the time.
EU is covered pretty well.

On the RV I use an end-fed inverted V for 30 with 6m fishing rod mast.
