Inverted-L for 80m & 160m

The 18m glassfibre pole from SPIDERBEAM is used, but without the top section too fragile to support the weight wind load of the 80m trap coil

Antenna 80 meter Links


80 Meter Tower Vertical with Short Radials

The modelled resistance component of the feed point impedance at 3.65 MHz is 80 ohm. It is high due to ground loss and being well off resonance. I chose to simply place a capacitor load in series with tower monopole, chosen to have a reactance of equal magnitude to the inductive reactance of 44 ohm at 3.65 MHz. This requires a capacitor of 1000 pf
