Please check out my video links below, if you are interested in very short beverage rx ants. You might be surprised at the results. Small garden ants, big noise reduction.
My TX ants below.
40m and 20m aluminium pole vertical antennas, fed with one coax and 1:1 balun. No tuner required. 150 radials , 10m long.
These antennas give me coverage from 40m-10m with a tuner, and the 40m ant will even work quite well on 80m with qrp and a tuner.
Back up rig : ICOM 740
Hi. THANKS FOR LOOKING ME UP, and if we had a qso, it was my pleasure to meet you, if you called me, and I did'nt hear you, forgive my poor wire ants, and old ears.
My name is Brian Fields , 64 years old, lic 1985 as G4XDJ, in Billingham,north east coast,Now living in the south island of New Zealand for 12 years, and as you can see by the pictures below ,its a very special place. I am a retired carpenter, now caring for my wife Barbara "barbs", who has multiple sclerosis,and cannot walk, but always smiles.
I try to be active around the evening greyline ZL time, so if you hear me, please call, or email if you want a sked qso.
NO AMPS, NO COMMERCIAL ANTS, NO CONTESTS HERE, BUT LOTS OF FUN.
SHACK IS : �ICOM 775DSP, �200 WATTS, WIRE VERTICALS . � CW MOSTLY.
Due to recent power line qrm, I am trying a short beverage ant on rx, only 40m long and 2 mtrs high, long path, and below some video's of the vertical with qrm, and beverage without qrm.
BEVERAGE I AM TESTING, 40M LONG - 2 MTRS HIGH, UNTERMINATED GIVING GOOD OMNI DIRECTION QRM FREE RECEPTION . This is running north east / south west.
BEVERAGE VIDEO :
Below is a new shorter beverage I am testing. With a noise reduction of 3-4 s-points over the vertical antenna. This is about 20m long.
I use a small rx tuner at the shack end, instead of a balun at the feed point outside.
This is my 20m long beverage, running north west / south east.
