New ham built antenna
Portable 6 band HF linked dipole antenna. An efficient dipole antenna that does not require a tuner.* Good for backpacking, SOTA, POTA, field day and emergency communications. Lightweight and easy to setup. Just add a portable pop up mast, a radio and you’re on the air. The mast slides right into the center insulator. To change bands, leave all the tent pegs in place and simply lower the center of the antenna by laying down the mast. Link or unlink the alligator clips to the band you want to use. Works great on a 100 watt radio. Length of the antenna is about 130 feet.
Note: Tuned using a 23ft pop up mast. SWR can vary depending on center height and setup configuration. Meant to be used with a pop up mast in an inverted V configuration. Other configurations may work.
Bandwidth under 2:1 SWR:
*Note: Playing with the positions of the clips per band in use can tweak the SWR. Will work the whole 80m band with a tuner.
