Hentenna for the 6m band

The Hentenna performs better than my commercial Al-pipe dipole. Moreover it is easier to transport and/or store anyway

Hentenna for the 6m band

Antenna 6 meter Links


The matching circuit is the same as above with the following components, C 1 = 20 - 110 pF, variabel Mica capacitor,C 2 = 2 - 15 pF, variabel foil capacitor

The 50MHz-Yagis are designed with an impedance of 12.5 Ohm or 28 Ohm and some types with 50 Ohm impedance

6 Meter 5/8 Wave Vertical Antenna
The vertical is loaded from the bottom with a coil wound on a previous block


Linear loaded short dipole 21Mhz For my amateur radio activities on the HF bands I only have a 3.6 m wide balcony available for antennas. After some study I decided to experiment with a shortened dipole for the 15 m band
