                                      SUPER LOOP 80

THIS IS THE FIRST HF ANTENNAS I HAVE.  THE OLDER HAMS TOLD ME IT WOULD NOT WORK, BECAUSE OF THE DESIGN. WELL AFTER 36+ COUNTRIES 40' HIGH WITH THIS ONE ,  NEEDLESSLY TO SAY THEY WERE WRONG. 

                         COBRA ULTRALITE MULTIBAND

AFTER TALKING WITH JOE (K1JEK) AND I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH IN AN ANTENNA. I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY A "STORE BOUGHT" ANTENNA. SO I ORDERED THIS ONE AND IT DOES TUNE 160/10M JUST FINE.  

 

                                   6 METER SQUALO

 WORKS GREAT!

SO BACK TO THE HOMEBREWING: FOR SOME REASON I GOT INTERESTED IN 6 METER AND HAD NO IDEA OF HOW PROPAGATION RUNS UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO AND IT WAS VERY LIGHT, BUT YET SO MANY PEOPLE AND PILEUPS. WELL I NEEDED AN ANTENNA AND DIDN'T WANT TO BUY ONE. THANKS TO JOHN (KG4OSA) FOR HIS ARTICLE ON THE NEASMN SITE

                DX ENGR.  DXE- MBVE-1 GROUND VERTICAL

ANOTHER "STORE BOUGHT" ANTENNA? YEA ANOTHER HAD TO HAVE WITH 2000' 14 GA WIRE AS GROUND RADIALS/150' COAX, ITS DOES A TERRIFIC JOB TUNING 10/160.

                    MOSLEY TA-33M WARC  W/TA-40-KR

 WELL I HAD TO TRAVEL A FEW MILES (690) FOR THIS ONE ,SO I DID IT AND HAD TO WAIT UNTIL I COULD AFFORD THE 40M KIT. NOT REALLY HIGH AS I WANT IT, BUT ITS UP AND PLAYING WELL.  

 

    WELL FOR THIS MOMENT, BUT THERES MORE TO COME

                         THERES ALWAYS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
