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.

CONFIGURATIONS for all CAROLINA WINDOM® Short™ models


FLAT-TOP

This is the design configuration for a CAROLINA WINDOM® Short . You need two supports (trees, etc.) separated by the appropriate distance. Be sure to keep the vertical elements away from metallic objects.

 

INVERTED-V

You may install your CAROLINA WINDOM® Short™ as an Inverted-V but the angle must not be too sharp. 120 degrees is the acceptable minimum. Element spacing will be compromised if a smaller angle is used. The recommended configuration is a flat-top.

 

SLOPER

There is no problem if one end of the CAROLINA BEAM™ is higher than the other. Just let the Vertical Radiators fall as perpendicularly to the ground as possible.

                 Code of Conduct            

cq-1107

 

 
 
Ask you please to follow the DX Code of Conduct with care.

Thank you for your attention!


I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.

I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.

I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.


I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.


I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.


I will always send my FULL CALL SIGN. ALWAYS


I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval.

>> I WILL NOT CALL CONTINUOUSLY <<


I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.


I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.


I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic other areas than mine.


When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.


I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.


I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.

Respect is about behaving well toward others. DXing is very competitive. If you operate otherwise, you may acquire a bad reputation. DXing will be the most fun for everyone if we all behave with politeness, mutual respect and even a bit of humility!

The grey line is a band around the Earth that separates the daylight from darkness. Radio propagation along the grey line is very efficient. One major reason for this is that the D layer, which absorbs HF signals, disappears rapidly on the sunset side of the grey line, and it has not yet built upon the sunrise side. Ham radio operators and shortwave listeners can optimize long distance communications to various areas of the world by monitoring this area as it moves around the globe. This map shows the current position of the grey line terminator.
