I need to make a trap dipole for 40 & 30 meters. But in an un usual way.
Yes here are many coaxial trap programs out there and others. But i need the traps to be as light as possible. Power is not to worry about it may see at the absolute most power of 5 watts, and more likely 1 to 2 watts really. but may go as high as 5.
I have never made a trap dipole before and from what I have been learning, it seems to be mainly a L and C circuit. that has some stray resistance.
So can low power traps be made from lumped components? like fixed capacitors and home made coils of tiny wire?
Remember the power is very low.
and i need these to be as light weight as possible every ounce counts.
