Well, my ham shack is nearly finished and operational. I've got a mix of new and used equipment, which is mainly my IC-706MIIG which I bought from W9MAG. NOW, onto my next project. I am wanting to build a homebrew antenna project. I thought of a wire dipole which I could use on all 160m - 6m. I'm sure I can use a 100' homemade dipole made from chicken wire and a balun and use an antenna tuner to tune my way across the amateur spectrum (if this is possible). My other possibility, using a 2 element beam with a tuner and using that across the amateur spectrum. I am basically trying to keep it simple as a good little antenna system to use during field day. I plan on sitting on a picnic bench at my parent's cabin and hunting for my contacts. Anybody have a practical design for this? Thanks and 73!!
