Low band antenna test

Tonight, in quite average summer conditions, I made a brief test of my lower-band antennas: called CQ on 80, 40 and 30 meter bands, and checked the response from the Reverse Beacon Network.
Click on the picture to see details. The "snr" means signal-to-noise ratio.

The antennas used: 80 meter vertical loop for 80 and 30m. 10m GP for 40m. Interesting to see the directions and db values. I was quite happy with the strong reported signals on the 80m band. Nota bene: there are more listening stations in the western europe than in the east/russia.
