Not sure if this is the correct forum for my question which is a bit of an odd one.

I have a half size G5RV mounted east to west with the ends pointing downwards due to lack of space when it was put up, however, this is about to be resited to make the ends go upwards in the next few weeks.

What I would really like to know is can anyone work out it's current Radiation Pattern or Transmit footprint and send me a copy? I've worked out it's a very long narrow footprint but would be very interested in a picture or advice on how I can find this out myself

Currently I can transmit to the following countries at a 5:9 - 5-8

Finland
Russia Both the European part and the central part
Italy
Sweden
Spain
Canaries (when conditions are right)
Southern part of Germany
Denmark
Bosnia
Hertzagovnia
Serbia
SWitzerland
All the former russian countries (to many to list)
Israel
Sardinia
Greece (same as Canaries)
Belguim when the weather is bad
Southern parts of France (as belguim)
Afgansitan (rarely think the country has been closed down)



I can hear the Northern part of Canada aound Labrador and the USA but cannot get back, I know I have 50 watts; I know of other intermediate licensees who can so it's not power related.

Search for "MMANA", this is a freeware program. Works only in meters if I remember correctly, but it should be enough to get you some idea of what you antenna is doing.
