HERE I AM WITH MY FRIEND DENNIS
KP3CB CELEBRATING THE FIRST YEAR OF PRARO
Above is My QTH in Toa Baja,Puerto Rico (USA).
This is my Homebrewed Carolina Windom Antenna works exellent !!! Believe me !! I don’t have room for an 80-meter dipole or long wire so I have to restrict the length to 66 feet or less. Besides my primary interests are working only SSB on 40, 20, 17,15,12,10 and 6 meters.Based upon these parameters, I have found what I consider to be the perfect antenna !! This more recent, New Carolina Windom, version has some very interesting characteristics as seen in the drawing above.For one, the 4:1 Balun has been moved to the antenna radiator and is built into the center insulator. The other interesting feature is that the 10 feet of coax from the Balun is terminated in a choke or line isolator. I have fitted the 10 foot stub with PL-259 UHF connectors on each end. This allows the coax vertical radiator to be easily removed if desired. It is designed to hang vertically which is one reason why this antenna is so effective.The radiation pattern when using the vertical radiator combines both horizontal and vertical radiation components and lowers the effective angle of radiation getting more of your signal near the horizon.This antenna is in use the world over by DX'ers and DX'peditions.
With myKenwood TS-2000X I' feel very glad to make contact with all of you and I hope meet you again on the air.
