Portable Vertical Antenna for 75m & 40
Designing the Antenna for 3.8 MHz With a regular vertical: 62 ft. mast is required Too long Radial length 60 ft. Too long Use a telescopic mast, 27 ft.and a 3 wire umbrella on top Radial length 27 ft. Same as vertical radiator height

Loop antenna for Rx on 80m
I have been experimenting with loops and found them to be very good Rx antennas. They have a useful null and provide a wonderfull drop in noise to bring the DX

Vertical 80m balloon antenna
The antenna could not be simpler - 1/4 or 1/2 wavelength of thin copper wire I used 35 SWG enamalled copper wire. This amounts to 20 or 40m of wire

The Double Bazooka Dipole
The Double Bazooka Dipole is a very efficient single band antenna


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

Rx antennas 4Square Rx Vertical Array

Rx antennas 4Square Rx Vertical Array My frequency design of 1.825 MHz a 90 degrees line would be 33,70 metersinstead of the previously calculated 33,27 m

A simple SWR Meter is to be used at HF

A simple SWR Meter is to be used at HF An SWR meter provides information about how well matched is your antenna with the transmitter and how well power is being radiated
