Title: EFHW sloper array?
Post by: vy2js on December 04, 2019, 01:03:23 pm
Would there be any advantage to be had by making an EFHW sloper array?

If the elevated supports are the same height and the correct distance apart, and the feedline to the 2nd sloper adjusted in length for the correct phasing, wouldn't the slopers then act like a beam of sorts?

This also presumes both "random" wires are the same length...

Maybe it could be a "bug out beam?"

Something to play with once the snow goes away I suppose.

Anyone ever try this?

Hello. I think it would work. I have seen videos of people using multiple fishing poles to make a vertical Yagi-Uda on HF.. I see no reason why it wouldn't work as a sloper.. Not sure about the radiation pattern, but you would get gain...

Another thing to add to the list of outdoor experiments come spring.
