Antennas : 20M : 20 meter Vertical Antennas
  • 4m Tall Vertical Dipole for 20m - Constructed in May 2008, this innovative 4m tall electrically full-size halfwave vertical dipole, tunable to multiple bands, offers HF coverage despite its space-saving design. Inspired by cost-effective DIY alternatives, the antenna design departs from conventional center-fed approaches, utilizing asymmetrical dimensions. Despite resonance challenges, the antenna's performance remains viable, boasting broad bandwidth and adaptability, as demonstrated through SWR measurements and EZNEC predictions.

Antennas : Dipole
  • 160-80-40 Metre Trapped V-Dipole - A Trapped dipole inverted V antenna for lower HF Bands. Construction details are for temporary installation. Permanent installations will require additional ruggedising and waterproofing however the basic electronics concepts remain the same. This project includes SWR plots for the three bands and pictures details of the homemade traps.

Antennas : Moxon
  • Moxon Mania - Building the Ultimate 4-Band Moxon Antenna - The article details the design and construction of a four-band Moxon beam by a radio amateur. The beam, mounted atop a rooftop tower, aimed for gain over a dipole on 20 meters, cost under $500, and included additional bands. The design features fiberglass spreaders, four bands (20/15/10/6 meters), and a single feedpoint. The construction involved computer modeling, NEC source code, and specific dimensions. The article outlines the assembly, materials, and tuning process, including in-situ adjustments for optimal performance. Despite initial challenges, the beam improved signal strength and facilitated contacts on multiple bands, marking it as the best HF antenna the author has owned.

Antennas : Multiband
  • Open-Folded W8JK Antenna for HF - Originally designed by John Kraus, W8JK in about 1940, this antenna has some interesting properties. The W8JK antenna is 2 (Two) centre-fed double-dipole fed by a pair of anti-phase signals. Small size, simple antenna, offer nice performance but need a tuner. Tested in this project from 30m to 6m bands

  • Space-Efficient Excellence: Inverted L Multi-Band HF Antenna - Discovering a solution for limited space, the inverted L HF antenna emerges as a stellar performer. Half the size of a dipole, it ensures optimal installation in restricted areas, maintaining superb transmission (TX) and reception (RX) characteristics. Spectrum Communications' multi-band version, featuring traps, proves even more space-friendly without compromising performance. A fiberglass pole offers sturdy support, while proper grounding, an RF choke, and occasional tuning contribute to a high-performing and reliable antenna system.

Antennas : OCF
  • Homebrew an OCF Off-Center Fed Dipole Antenna - This type of antenna is a popular antenna design as the performance is very good across the HF bands and requires little or no tuning. It’s a dipole fed off center with a 4:1 balun at the offset feed point. The antenna shown covers 80, 40, 20 and 10 meters. The formula can also be used to adjust the overall length to cover more or fewer bands and the resulting overall length. 160-10m, 80-10m or 40-10 meters depending on your available space. Other bands will require a tuner.

Antennas : Theory
  • Variations on a Dipole - Antenna patterns are all about interference. Presentation on wire antennas for HF bands. Dipoles, horizontal and vertical dipoles, effects of ground on radiation patterns, multi-band wires antennas. Knowing what you should expect from the radiation patterns for waves on your wires will help you choose what will work best for your needs. The principles of interference can lend insight into what to expect from a wire antenna.
