Best I'll be able to manage initially is somewhere around 25-28 feet. Depends how light I make it.
What is the diameter of that thing? It looks like you're building a mini spiderhexbeam.
Since you'll be putting it up and down a lot I'd suggest fabricating a mounting hub out of small wood blocks drilled out to accept thin glass fibre arms. Use very thin wire and the lightest plastic box to house the balun in, perhaps a small Lexan sheet as a rain cover might even suffice---experiment and see. GL and have fun; the G3TXQ version is the way to go, too.
the photo is an actual washing line.
the planned build is based upon this:
That ought to dry those stubborn wet clothes pretty fast.
Are you putting it at that elevation at night and taking back down before morning?
Yeah that's the plan, and what I do with the dipole.
Oh cool. Just looked up your location.
We passed through your town this time last year (almost to the day) on a 4000+mile 3 week road trip. Passed through heading from Page to Bryce Canyon.
No it was after Bryce heading to Salina for Motel.
And 6th September 2014
THen, you passed through my little town, too... Kanab... It's where you banged a right to the north.
Sure did! Gotta say I LOVED the trip and am hoping for another one in 2016.
I passed through Kanab several years ago going the other direction, with 11 very annoyed cats, and two confused dogs in the vehicle. It was nighttime. Almost missed that left turn.
