Optimizing half-wave sloper arrays for 160 meters - This article presents a 160-meter variation of this family of antennas and, more importantly, a discussion of the details of how to get such a beast working really well.
Analysis Of Antenna Mast Strength and Bending Stress - Calculations for determining the wind loading stress on an antenna mast. Link to a spreadsheet for calculating the mast bending stress based on wind speed and antenna cross sectional area.
Installing dipole insulators - Installing your dipole end insulators
Yagi Element Mounting Considerations - One of the most important considerations when designing and building a Yagi antenna is the method used to attach the elements to a boom. This is true because the boom influences the electrical length of the elements. In this article JH Reisert explain with drawings techniques on mounting yagi antenna elements to a boom
