Ready to Go

Ok, It does't look much but today I made up a doublet for the HF bands. 40 metre top section, 10 metres of 300ohm feeder and a 4:1 Balun.
Its going to be fun fitting this into the garden, in fact half of it will be in the field behind the house. In any case I am hopping it will be a little better than the shortened dipole is on 80 metres and will hopefully work a bit better on the other bands.
I haven't put it up yet,thats a job for another day.

  2. Hi Kevin, great blog...

    good idea to put up this doublet...I might do the same soon. I've been trying end feds and Inverted L's here for last few success with my 5 watts ..
    Good luck with the antenna...
