Portable Antenna
« on: June 29, 2019, 06:22:40 PM »
Gents,
I tried the 9:1 UnUn with a random wire for field day.
While I made a dozen or so contacts, I was hoping for a little bit better.
I recently purchased the buddipole but haven't used it yet.
JHere is a 20second video of my field day. Look at the location and let me know if you guys think a buddipole would work better.
I was doing FT8 at the time of this video.
Cheers!

Hello,

You might want to try a 49:1 or 64:1 with a half-wave wire...

Were you , or someone, at none time , going to build the 49:1 un/un's ? ( To make a little money ) Did anything become of that?
