The better your antenna the more success you will have making contacts.
10 meter attic dipole.
Mac af4ps fp 51 note.
More information on my website at http www fuzzthepiguy tech dipole hamradio.
This was installed at a previous qth i will be the first or millionth remember i m from fl to affirm that the antenna is the determining factor for success when it comes to one s station set up.
I initially feed the dipole directly with a 1 1 balun and rg58 coax.
The 10 meter and 6 meter ham bands.
This was okay but appeared noisy.
Build an hf ham radio dipole antenna it is easy to build construct and erect a dipole antenna for the hf bands.
Ham radio antenna that needs no trimming and covers 40 meters 20 meters 10 meters and 6 meters with swr less than 3 to 1.
The antenna is rated to handle 125 watts continuous and 1 500 watts pep.
I later changed this by feeding the dipole twin feeder via a remote balun.
An attic coaxial cable trap dipole for 10 15 20 30 40 and 80 meters w5gi mystery antenna this antenna covers 80 to 6 meters with low feed point impedance and will work with most radios with or without an antenna tuner.
The frequency devices 10n6rdb take the half wave dipole a step further by working on two bands with one feed line.
The antenna is 68 and one half foot long one side is 23 feet long and the other is 45 5 feet long with high quality components used throughout.
10n6rdb antenna in the pictures the bottom horizontal aluminum tubing is a half wave dipole tuned to 10 meters that is all set to be fed with your 50 ohm coax.
This was found to be quieter and made the antenna less sensitive to frequency changes.
160 80 40 20 15 10 metres etc using a few simple components at a minimal cost and get great results.
