6 Meter Portable Dipole N7JFP

A list of parts needed is at 13:28 of video. This video shows how I made my 6 meter portable dipole using collapsible antennas and PVC. I used a MFJ269 to do SWR testing. To center the hex coupler nut and to keep the epoxy cement contained I used a rubber grommet around the coupler nut. A length of 51 to 52 inches per side will enable a usable SWR over the entire 6 meter band. Now if the band will just open up so I can try JT65 mode on it. 73, N7JFP

Magnetic Longwire Balun simpel

Der Film beschreibt die simple Herstellung eines sog. Manetic Baluns 1:9. Eigendlich ist es keine Balun, sondern ein UN-Un Übertrager mit einem Spannungsübersetzungsverhältnis von 1 zu 3 und einem Widerstandsübersetzungsverhältnis von 1 zu 9. Eine verhältnismäßig hohe Impedanz einer Langdrahtantenne wird herunter transformiert um an den Wellenwiderstand eine Empfängers oder Senders angepasst zu werden.

I'm testing my homemade, three element yagi antenna on 28.5 MHz. The Gamma Match is made of a mobile-antenna socket with an 38 Inch (hy-gain) rod. The directors are made of six shorted radials of an old 27MHz, 14 GP antenna by LEM. The boom is made of a 2x2cm ALU-tube. Equipment: YAESU FT-920 with G-250 rotator, antenna analyzer by VECTRONICS: (SWR-584B)

Bad Ass! ICOM AH 703 5 band antenna. Great QRP mil spec antenna

This HFVHF 5 band antenna is worth every dollar. Quick deployable for preppers, hams, FEMA, and military agencies. I'll show you how well it works and how it functions. No tuning required or little tuning in a couple cases. A series of videos based on this antenna to follow under different installs and locations.

6 Meters The Magic Band

Six Meters (50-54 MHz) is also known as "The Magic Band" by HAMS who enjoy the magic of HF-type long range communication on VHF during the summer Sporadic-E opening. The trick is you never know when there will be an opening so you have to be ready for the action when the band conditions open!

Amateur Radio Mast for G5RV Junior Antenna VK4FADI

I needed a stick to hang my dipoles or G5RV off. This was a cheap and simple solution to get me going with HF. It didn't cost much, It doesn't look too bad, it can be removed and I can add a bit more height if I want to. At present it gives me about 5.7 meters in height above ground for the centre point of an inverted V. VK4FADI

My Buddipole Long Deluxe has arrived the Buddiblues M0VST

A quick video to show you whats in the box. There are a few extras in there, I picked to have the long 9.5 feet whips, the 16 feet mast, the 50 feet long coax assembly and the counterpoise kit for when I use the Buddipole in the vertical mode. A huge thanks to Chris - W6HFP and Budd - W3FF for personalising my kit and congratulations having created such a well engineered portable antenna with such an attention to detail. Don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss out on the next BuddiPole video coming soon

Portable HF using Buddipole Deluxe Antenna European stations mostly re...

What can the Buddipole Deluxe portable HF antenna do? How well does it work? This video shows an afternoon's DX on 20m using a Kenwood TS590s running 100 watts into a Buddipole Deluxe. The Buddipole was actually set up for 40m but I used my Kenwood TS590's built in tuner to compensate for the 40m antenna. This means that my transmit and receive signal were not as good as they could have been had i tuned up the antenna for the 20m. Most stations reported receiving my signal in Europe via "long path" with their 20m yagi antennas aimed towards South America. This means that instead of the European stations aiming their directional antennas at Australia via the shortest path (form Europe in a South Easterly direction towards Australia), most were receiving my signal via the long way around the earth (Australia, NZ, The Americas & then Europe). This is a much longer trip for the radio signal to travel than by the shorter, more direct path. You wont get a clearer testimony to what a great little antenna the Buddipole is than a video like this. Atmospheric conditions also determine what propagation on any particular day is like too. You can have the best antenna in the world, but if conditions are not good for HF, then it just wont work! If you take time to setup the Buddipole correctly, it's a versatile solution for those like myself that enjoy portable HF amateur radio. I'm setup portable in this video at Werribee South, Victoria in South Eastern Australia.
