40m Dipole about 9m high

Using the 12.5m mast with the centre of the antenna around 3m from the top due to the onshore wind. No contacts on it however, the 40m band was so busy with most of Europe producing strong signals nobody could hear my low power transmissions. Did okay on 17m though, much quieter there and got through to Hungary and Slovak Rep. with decent reports considering using only 5 watts maximum.
