I like to construct antennas. Picture shows my EXPLORER18 - experimental 7 band beam (extended EXPLORER14 from HY-Gain).
Works from 40 to 10 mtrs = 7 bands, 7 elements.Boom 5,4m.
weight app 28kg. Optimized for 12m due to most missing countries. Versatower =10.5 mtrs high.
Wkd valid DXCC with this antenna = 339 of 339 !!.
40m = 331 DXCC
30m = 334 DXCC (need KH1, KH3, P5, VK0M, ZS8)
20m = 338 DXCC (need P5)
17m = 332 DXCC
15m = 337 DXCC (need VK0M+ KH7)
12m = 322DXCC
10m = 324DXCC
On 80/160 with folded wire-gp:
80m = 314 DXCC
160m = 272 DXCC
Menber of: GDXF, HSC, VHSC, SHSC and EHSC.
On top = 5 element KONNI antenna for 6 meters.
Worked 174 DXCC on 6m, including KH6 and VK6
My new hobby QRPP with my = Frog Sound = QRPP tranceiver. Comes from China as kit. Output pwr = 2 watts!!
Total costs = 9.68 Euros which is eqv 10 Us$ including shipping costs. Listen to my CQ on 7024.4 Khz
