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

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.

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

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)

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.

Buddies in the Caribbean 2011 Mini DXpedition to Dominica Part 1

(Part 1) In Feb2011 the "Buddies in the Caribbean" DXpedition (a group of 8-hams specializing in 100 watt or less low power radios and the Buddipole portable antenna system) spent a week operating from the island of Dominica on beaches, mountains and from their cliff-side villa. This is an annual effort to demonstrate "ultralight" dxpeditioning into magnificent "vista" locations, operate a field portable battery-only radio with back-packable, lightweight antennas and most of all "have fun!"

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!

SARC gets a new UHF VHF antenna and some tower repairs

Visit for blog write up: The (SARC) Superstition Amateur Radio Club of Mesa, AZ needed to replace their UHFVHF repeater antenna and repair the hard feed line which had a large dent in it from years back. This video shows the club taking down the tower, replacing the antenna and fixing the hard line.

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.

Building A Multi Band HF Dipole Antenna

Here I build a multi-band dipole antenna for HF use on 40-20-15-10-6 meters. Some call this a fan dipole.

Set up a Baofeng UV 5R Repeater System

Instructions on how to set up build a Baofeng UV-5R VHF Repeater System or use Baofeng as repeater. This setup could be used or deployed in emergency or disaster, SHTF or WROL situations where communications are vital for survival. Instructions presented in this video are for educational purposes only. Pardon for the grammatical and pronunciation errors; English is not my mother tongue.Check it in action * you need: The Baofeng repeater system is composed of an RX (receiving) unit and a TX (transmitting) unit so that means you'll need 2 Baofeng UV-5R radios. No need for radio tone controller. The setup takes advantage of the VOX feature (Voice Operated Transmission) on the TX unit. Aside from the RX and TX units, you will also need a stereo cable with 3.5mm Male and 2.5mm Male ends just like this: http:dx.comp3-5mm-male-to-2-5mm-male-audio-cable-50cm-length-26999Other notes: Frequencies have to be dialed in on the repeater system and the radios which will be used to communicate with the system. In the video, I used 2 UV-5Rs to communicate with the repeater system but you can also use other 2-meter portables as long as it can do frequency shift and you can specify the shift direction. It could be any brand-model portable transceiver and not necessarily a Baofeng UV-5R. * Drawback Though not evident in the video due to close proximity of the test radio units to the repeater system, there is that so-called 'receiver desensitization' (a.k.a desense) which can be "defined as on-channel noise or a strong off-channel signal that degrades the receiver sensitivity. On-channel noise can be coming from the repeater or passing through the duplexer from some other source. An off-channel signal can be close in frequency and physically located somewhere else (another site), or it can be located in close physical proximity to the receiver, but not necessarily close in frequency. Either situation will restrict the receiver's capability to detect (pick up) a weak signal, such as a low-level signal from a mobile or handheld radio." http:www.bird-technologies.comResources~mediaBirdFilesPDFResourceswhite-papersDuplexers-and-Repeaters_some-basic-information.ashxSolutions: 1. Vertical and horizontal space separation isolation of the TX and RX antenna2. Install a duplexer tuned to your desired RX and TX frequencies; enables you to use only one antenna for the entire repeater system setup (connected to the duplexer). Crossband repeat with 150 plus MHz separation. Receive on UHF then transmit on VHF, separate TX and RX antenna, no duplexer. hope this helps. Thanks a lot for watching. Maraming salamat po at Maligayang Pasko sa inyong lahat..
