    Hello fellow hams,

    I am looking for ham sticks diagrams.

    I already have the 40 meter and 20 meter band drawings (in Portuguese, I can provide/translate them if you would like to see them) but I would like to give a try in other bands...

    I also would like to try the hamstick dipole (2 hamsticks) and for your experience should I use a 1:1 unun or a balun?

    Thanks in advanced,

    Luis, CT2FZI

    Why go to a lot of trouble to make an antenna that is not very efficient? The center loaded Buddistick / Buddipole idea would work better.

    Hello and thanks for your answer!

    Could you please be kind and share with me/us the buddystick/pole diagram?

    I would like to give it a try.

    Nevertheless the hamstick is a fast, easy and very very cheap solution.

    I guess that a diy hamstick is better than a dummy load. Not much, but better :)

    Cheers and thanks in advanced,

    Thank you very much for your suggestions :)

    Nevertheless I would like to learn how to calculate the ham stick coils for different bands.

    I don't know if I will build them, I just would like to learn some more things.
