Former bush pilot, and forest fire air tanker pilot. Flew B-25, A-26, and the Grumman TBM. That,s me in the Grumman TBM3E and the B-25
After 2 crashes, neither one my fault, I traded in the airplanes for a sailboat, and became a house dad.
I run VE7MTW Antenna Manufacturing, where I USED to build TRADITIONAL 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.
NOTE: I no longer manufacture open wire feedline, but if you wish to know how to build the BEST open wire feedline for yourself, please go to W1AEX QRZ page, or Google W1AEX.COM, and look for his section on "Home Made Open Wire Feedline"
Robert has put together a great website, including a superb tutorial on building the best open wire feedline going. He has kindly consented to allow me to link to his website, and you will not be disappointed. Thanks Robert
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
