From half of year 2014 until today june 2015, I used this magic wire in my balcony of my new apartment in Bologna. If You listened to me is by this antenna . In the next operation I'll put up on the roof the GAP TITAN DX
Here there is the photo of my Antenna of the 6 m, as you can see she is handmade with material of recovery, 4 telescopic antennas from TV, a mast of the broom of house etc. etc. ....The others next antennas are parts of electrical cables with BALUN handmade or with traps by RG58......
This is my MORGAIN 40-80 m .... naturally handmade
and this a triband antenna by wire of copper and RF choke
HANDMADE VERTICAL ANTENNA FOR 20m
Vertical antenna for 20m λ/4,by 5 military pipes .......and a bit of fantasy
The components of antenna
The wires are for the ground plane
In short, if you have listened to me, is for 3 fundamental reasons :
1) God exists....
2) Your stations are super
3) You are very great OM......... with a lot of patience!!!!
HI HI HI HI HI HI HI .
Very Very thanks to ALL

If You want to visit the WEBpage You will be very welcome,
My QRP Station 2,5W for 20 m CW . I'm very grateful for the calls of the OM that listen to me when I'm QRP. The photos up are of my QRP SW-20 station used in the Kefallonia island in summer 2010
THIS SUMMER 2011, I WAS VERY BUSY IN THE CRETE ISLAND AND WAS IMPOSSIBLE
TO USE THE RADIO EVERYDAY , I'M VERY SORRY, .............
The new ONE Dipole for 20 meters long 6 meters with capacitive hats.........
QSO with VK, Ja, BU...... with 90 Watt I Think that the antenna works WELL.........
... naturally with the propagation!!!
the antenna without caps
The measures of antenna for 20 m with capacitive caps
The length of an element is 3,1 meters
The radius of caps 40cm. The GAP 2 cm
I hope that this information is useful. Naturally considered indicative the measures. When you will build your antenna given some cm in more and then with the SWR / ROSmeter you put in perfect resonance. 73
What is this???
What am I measuring?????
Am I measuring a fishing rod?
what are that wires???... A capacitive hat.????...... but are we crazy.???. it is an antenna???..Impossible
Yes!!! Is an antenna λ/4 by a meter long up to 7,5 meters. Is possible to use from 7 MHz to 50MHz to lengthen or to shorten, to insert or not the capacitive hat, to have a low SWR on the various bands
My QRP used in zone 5 and an old machine to sew... The simple things are always the nicest
New 30 - 40 m antenna
What happens if we make to work some coils with the capacitive hats ??
In a first time, I have realized a dipole for the 10 MHz length 6,32 ms (2 elements of 3,16 m + GAP of 2cm ) with coils ( 33 turns up a pipe of PVC DN 5cm ). In a second moment, I have added 2 capacitive hats to the extremities (radius 24cm) with 4 cm of wire in more... The dipole, work again to 7 MHz!!!!
Here the coil and capacitive hat
The antenna up the fishing rod
An element length 3,16 m
Measure the radius of cap
24 cm of radius
The length of an element of dipole 3,16 m
and the GAP of 4 cm
to get the resonance at 7MHz I must add 4,5 cm of wire at the cap
The junction at extremities
The distance between the coil and the extremity of the dipole is long 78 cm, the length of coil is 11 cm
THE MEASURES ARE INDICATIVE, IN MY ANTENNAS ARE AS SHOWN BEFORE IN THE PHOTOS, BUT IN YOUR ANTENNAS COULD BE JUST A BIT DIFFERENT
Setup summer 2012 in my country house
The view of my setup
up the view of my vertical antenna( 1/2of wave)for 14MHz with capacitive caps
up the view of my vertical antenna( 1/2of wave)for 10MHz with coils
up the view of wires ............................
up the view of my portable antenna( 1/4 of a wave) for 14 - 18 - 21 MHz with a coil and a capacitive cap
IF YOU HAVE HEARD ME FROM 14 JULY UNTIL 14 AUGUST 2012, THESE WERE THE ANTENNAS USED WITH MAX 100W
