Former bush pilot, and forest fire air tanker pilot. Flew B-25, A-26, and the Grumman TBM. That,s me driving the Grumman TBM Avenger, and top right 25 years ago, relaxing on the vintage BMW motorbike, after ferrying the B-25 (pictured) to Burrigo Springs, in eastern California, from Alberta, Canada. After 2 water bomber crashes, (neither one my fault) I traded in the airplanes for the sailboat.
I buildTRADITIONAL open wire ladderline by itself, and/or complete All Band Doublet and loop antennas, for those amateurs who don,t have the time or patience to build their own.
It is extremely strong, weatherproof, durable ladderline, and is mfg using either 12 or 14 AWG stranded, insulated copper wire. Prices are reasonable, but please remember, you are paying for my time and labour, in what can be a time consuming, hair pulling job. But, I guarantee, it will done right!! I have a workshop with construction jigs, that make my job relatively easy. Biggest ladderline to date was 803 ft long, unspliced. Each feedline, is custom built to order, but usually ships within 72 hrs.
Feedback from customers has been extremely postive. Two of my antennas with feedline, went to the Solomon islands, for the H44RK DXpedition, 2013, where they performed exceedingly well!!
Picture on left is ladderline, and 540 ft loop, up since 2002. Picture on the right, is a 40 thru 10 Mtr Junior Doublet.The center picture is the 102 ftof new ladderline, (It is NOT a fence!!!) stretched out in the yard nine months ago for final inspection, before shipping to H44RK in Samoa. Thanks Ralph.The radiating section (all 135 ft of it. ) is behind me in the farm workshop.
My own station is a very humble Yaesu FT102, Icom 730, outboard tuner, and 160 thru 10 mtr coverage on either my Doublet or Loop antenna. I regret having to use 4 ft of coax
