80m short dipole

Postby zs2cx » Wed Apr 27, 2011 11:56 am

A short dipole for 80 meters
This short 80m antenna was a compromise 2nd to none, it worked though and when the 80m band was open, even better. :lol:


U have to experiment a bit with the amount of turns, as it will never be the same as mine was, I have sandy soil and the height above ground was 14m, well it will get u on 80m and u can work most stations, yes S9 to S9+ is the norm of the S readings received over a distance of 400 to 1400 km.( i did not work any dx :mrgreen: with it)
