PVC Antenna change
« on: April 09, 2018, 2201 UTC »
Hi Folks,

Just for a change, I tuned up PVC on the garden longwire: approx 80ft span between trees at ~20ft above ground. There is a balun and a ground rod at the feed-point. I think the usual dipole might benefit from a little attention in the mean time.

No opportunity for listening of late, so just antenna experiments for now. Longer term, I also want to test a small tuned loop on 22m operation.

Cheers

Ed
