Just Made First Contact On 6 Meters
Well....got my 6 meter antenna off of Ebay and got in the attic and put it up today!
Its in sort of an inverted V but not quite...the SWR runs below 1.5 on the whole band and made a contact in Michigan on 50.125.
I wrapped extra coax around a piece of PVC pipe as a choke and I hope I did it right.
Anywho...heard CW on 50.075 and switched over to my 5BTV and didnt hear it as well so I guess this dipole-inverted V is going to work!
Specs 6 meter.jpgare in the attic up about 20ft,cost 19.99 for the dipole and got the coax from DX Engineering..RG8X.
