7 Band Portable Dipole Antenna

7 band portable dipole antenna


Bob Rice VE3HKY has produced another beautiful antenna, this time it is called the 7-Band Portable Dipole Antenna. I attended the London Amateur Radio Club meeting last night and he gave a talk on his new antenna. His previous 7-Band Semi-Vertical Antenna is documented at his site. His new portable dipole seems to compare nicely with the W3FF Buddipole. Contact Bob at bobrice2@sympatico.ca for more information, he has a DVD which shows him constructing one of the antennas. Let me know if you build one!

One of the major resources on the web for the EFHW antenna is AA5TB’s site. I have included many links to articles on his site but also have some others. If you are interested in the EFHW antenna, check them out.

Spiral Counterpoise

Jake, N0LX, has some nice antennas on display at his site. One of the more interesting ideas he writes about on his site is the idea of using a spiral of wire or ribbon as a counterpoise to a vertical. No room for radials, then perhaps this will work for you. Check out his article on a spiral counterpoise for a vertical antenna.

ed wa3wsjEd WA3WSJ has an interesting site to me. I don’t know how I found it initially, probably searching on antennas, but I do return it every once in a while to check out his activities. This guy is an avid hiker with his dog Trevor (pictured) and has developed some interesting antennas. I have links to a couple, not sure if these are still available on his site or not, the bead wire antenna and the tri-band dipole antenna. Check out his website, I will add a link to my list on the side.
