What is all that white background... did your camera slip into over expose and wash it out..
Michael, thank you for such a nice project. I built one from parts laying around the house and am amazed at its directional capabilities. The only downside is now when I have to measure something, I’ll have to grab my radio!
That's a downside?..as a side note tell me if you were assigned to 1974th Comm Sqdn @ Scott or if you knew Dennis Peak...you can answer at my qrz.com email address instead of here.
Este proyecto es muy bueno yo transmití con una antena de este tipo con cinta métrica, transmision desde Pico espejo estado Merida Venezuela YY4LUN
Usando un icom icT2H
Keep up the good work.
Not bad (except for those knife-edge hose clamp ends which are guaranteed to attack you and anything else they may contact)
You need to inform the viewer if they are going to utilize a BNC connector at the end of their pigtail on this project that they need to be aware there are 2 different kinds; 50 Ohm (for radio use) and 75 Ohm (for A/V use).
For such a introductory antenna build, a lot of people may not know this, and they look virtually identical.
It also might not be a bad idea to raise the antenna a bit higher with a 2 or 3 piece support pole, and also stand slightly further away (which has the added bonus of seeing better if the antenna is actually horizontal).
Why not ?!
Sometimes we just forget to experiment with simple means / objekts .
