The G0GSF is his new call sign and there is a version that will fit in smaller areas. Video here.
Ian, the 95 foot span was from the top of the 60 foot point to the top of the 20 foot point, that is why we used the word span! Not horizontal distance.
Yes, in this config they do work great! What's particularly nice is the very good match on several bands making it ideal for use with some of the newer HF radios that do not include an antenna tuner (they make for great field antennas if you can get them up in the air at 40+ feet) including the Icom 718 or IC-705 or the Yaesu FT-891. Also, they are very light weight so you generally don't need a center support (as you do with a fan-dipole). The choke is at ground level (rather than way up in the air) so not much weight pulling down at the feedpoint and easy to keep it all up in the air...
It must be the "REDWOOD", HI HI. Just a little humor input for these crazy times, but do's sound good. 7 3 and enjoy the hobby. W7GST
Really like the results i'm getting from the "Burger King Whopper " antenna .
99% of my log is no this wire antenna , at only 35 Feet.
Yes! Post a review.
Since I live in Florida, his pipeline is that we have that many hams and being third in population, this is not a surprise. His lobe to Texas is not a lobe but where most of the hams live in Texas. West Texas is pretty sparse. The third lobe is not a lobe but to southern California and lots of hams there. These are not lobes but where the hams are in the southern half. I don't live up north (thank God) but maybe someone could examine up there because I have little knowledge there.
I am planning a 5 star review on my lawn chair I load up for 160 meters. Thats almost as good as your G5RV.
